The Bath and Wells Podcast, Pioneering Plus will be a series of conversations exploring the places where God already is, and the church may not yet be! There will be conversation about what it means to be pioneering, and how God is leading us all in new and exciting directions.
Our first podcast is Talking Pioneering with Tina Hodgett, who is Evangelism and Pioneer Team Leader in Bath and Wells. Each month Tina will chat with people across the diocese, exploring pioneer mission and talking about the way it is expressed and practiced, by different people each with a different approach.
“I was asked recently for the main joys and challenges of leading on the Pioneer Project. The absolute main joy is getting to know people who’re pioneering, hearing their stories, finding out how God has been at work in their lives, how they came to be doing what they’re doing, and what they’re dreaming about. In these podcasts the listener gets to share that joy and privilege, and I hope may be inspired to get involved somehow as the Holy Spirit directs.”
