One Church, One Pioneer, One Community.
Under the God for All initiative, Carlisle diocese has growing reputation for creative mission and a strong vision to reach out to everyone in the county. St Peters Church, Kells, Whitehaven is moving with this vision to recruit a ful time stipendiary Ordained Pioneer Minister.
The pioneer will lead the church to making the most of the good community connections established, growing new Christian communities in the area and supporting the congregation to reach out further and creatively into their community.
There is a growing coalition of pioneers emerging in Cumbria, who are able to access support and development through the Northern Pioneer Centre (a collaboration between God for All and Church Mission Society) and we hope this role will contribute to our growing pioneer community and mixed ecology of church across Cumbria. Additionally the pioneer will play a key role in the wider mission community, offering leadership, and developing innovative mission and outreach in the wider area.

Much of the initial work is now self-sustaining, so this post is about identifying and growing new work in new ways in new areas to grow Fresh Expressions of church with young people. You will part of the county wide NYC team, and have the freedom to lead and grow the project locally. Read more
