Job Description

Southampton Pioneer Connection is looking for an experienced pioneer to co-lead our new initiative under a Bishop’s Mission Order. In this role you will spend half of your time resourcing and releasing lay pioneers to establish fresh expressions of church throughout the city. With the other half, you will be directly engaged in pioneer ministry by growing a fresh expression of church in the parish of Maybush.


You will:

  • co-lead a pioneering team in Southampton and help to shape the culture of pioneering across the deanery;
  • train, support and mentor a team of lay pioneers;
  • support the emergence of 20 new fresh expressions of church in Southampton.


We offer:

  • freedom to pioneer in a largely unchurched, urban estate on the edge of a vibrant city;
  • the support of a network of pioneers, including OPMs and Pioneer curates, Church Army evangelists and lay pioneers;
  • a deanery committed to and focused on pioneering.
