Diocese of Portsmouth

Pioneering Parishes webinars

Start date
27 Jan 2021, 2 p.m.
End date
24 Feb 2021, 3:30 p.m.

This free series of webinars will offer different models and principles which guide clergy and lay leaders in the process of developing pioneering parishes. The models will also provide a framework for helping to articulate the vision of pioneering parishes within local congregations.

The Pioneering Parishes webinar will be led Tina Hodgett and Greg Bakker.

  • Tina is the Evangelism & Pioneer Team Leader in Bath & Wells diocese. As an ordained pioneer in parish ministry she helped enable a traditional civic church develop its missional imagination.
  • Greg Bakker, Pioneer Development Officer in Portsmouth Diocese, has experience of creating space for pioneering in an urban working-class parish which was recognised in the local community as a small church with big impact.
“I loved the pioneering webinars you ran in the spring. They had a significant impact on my current ministry.” Jenn, Ordinand
“I found the insights about running two different organisational models helpful in thinking about leading a church. I also found the notion of the ‘pioneer advocate’ helpful since I am not a pioneer myself – yet pioneering is clearly needed.” Sue, Curate
