Pioneer Open Day – blended learning

Dr Cathy Ross is issuing an invitation to come and see us in person!

“We are excited to offer our next Open Day in person as well as via Zoom. Do come and find out about the various options we offer from Certificate through to doctoral level study in person, online and also with a blended approach. You will hear from current students and have an opportunity to ask questions.”

You can attend our next open day on 21 June in two ways:

Face to face at CMS Oxford! 10.30 am to 1pm
via Zoom: 7.30pm – 9pm

Places are limited for our face to face meeting, and virtually unlimited for our virtual option. So, the only question is – are you interested?

Our open days provide a great chance to explore your calling, your feelings and your mission, and to look further into where you think God is leading you.

Whether you are doing that at our CMS Oxford offices socially distanced in a group, or via Zoom listening and speaking to people in breakout groups, we know it can be a very important time in your journey.

Many of our students say studying with us is like coming home, that it feels like family – and we love to hear that!

One of our postgraduate students, Dom Clarke, told me: “Pioneering is a hope for the church.” When I asked him about the course, he said “My highlight was new ways of looking at what we do and how we do it with the other pioneers on the course – for example African spirituality.”

We have so many new things to bring this coming academic year. Our MA will now offer two options, a focus on pioneering and a new route with a focus on African Christian Diaspora.

We are offering the whole MA online, as well as a mixture of face to face and online options for modules on our postgraduate and undergraduate courses.

We train ordinands in the Church of England, and work through a partnership with Ripon College Cuddesdon. If you are on that journey, you may like to explore this with us (even if you are not a designated pioneer, you could train with us).

We have a lot of experience in training pioneers to use their gifts, especially ‘the gift of not fitting in’. So why not join us for an open day, or email for more information. See how you can not fit in, together with us, and start something exciting and new in 2021.

Numbers are limited for places on the face to face open day and if you wish to join us for either session, you must book in advance.
