Pioneer-Methodist Connexion

In a relationship between Pioneer and the Methodist Church over the use of church buildings, Billy Kennedy for Pioneer and Martyn Atkins for the Methodist Church introduce a website which provides more details of the partnership.

Martyn Atkins writes: 

Over the past four years, the Methodist Church has benefitted from and contributed to an increasingly warm and fruitful relationship with the Pioneer Network. The number of healthy explorations of potent mission and ministry projects in circuits and local churches grows almost weekly at the moment. In some parts of the Connexion substantial healthy and mutually enriching partnerships are now fast emerging.

I have reported this exciting development to the Conference who have rightly encouraged that Methodism continue to seek to work for God’s kingdom with a wide variety of partners in a fast changing ecumenical context: and of course Billy Kennedy, the leader of the Pioneer Network was invited to address the presbyteral session of our Conference last year and was warmly received. I warmly encourage and commend further explorations and deepening partnership with the Pioneer Network as they arise.   

The website includes accounts of case studies.
