Trinity offers new Pioneer Focus
Trinity College is now offering a Pioneer Focus, for those students who have been approved as ordained pioneer ministers, or who will be serving in a pioneering curacy.
The first pioneer cohort, which is facilitated by mission tutor Rev Dr Howard Worsley, currently includes eight students, who are a mix of residential and full-time nonresidential students. It meets twice each half-term, providing opportunities for students to engage with guest practitioners and share experiences and ideas with one another while engaging in pioneer opportunities within their placements. Students are also encouraged through the group’s conversations to reflect on how what they are learning in classes will impact their pioneer ministries, and within classes are offered assessment options with a pioneering focus.
Ordinand Michelle Taylor, who is preparing for a pioneer curacy in Bath and Wells Diocese, says the new cohort is ‘really exciting–what I’m hoping for is shared ideas, to get to hear other people’s stories, to bounce ideas off each other.’ Howard describes the group’s initial meetings as ‘very electric, very alive.’
