We have a long history of innovative pioneering across Cumbria, you will find pioneers in communities where other churches find it difficult to engage: the post industrial towns on our west coast; high up in fells in the lake district; in our market towns and in Carlisle working to bring justice and hope through our Restore Charity shops; or across the networks that exist amongst youth within the county. All this work shares a common theme, to bring the life, hope and justice of Jesus to those who would never encounter other forms of church. We have partnered with Church Mission Society (CMS) in the foundation of the Northern Mission Centre to bring further training and expertise to this cutting edge pioneering.

The Northern Young Leadership Project offers a Pioneer pathway through the year. You will be placed within one of our pioneer projects, to work alongside a recognised pioneer and, to explore if God may be calling you to this ministry.
