Pioneering Plus podcast

The Bath and Wells Podcast, Pioneering Plus features conversations exploring the places where God already is, and the church may not yet be! There are conversations about what it means to be pioneering, and how God is leading us all in new and exciting directions.

Talking Pioneering is one of the series. It is hosted by Andrew Alden, a Pioneer Minister in Frome Deanery. Andrew, who describes himself as an experienced church minister, but a less experienced pioneer, hears from other pioneers about their experiences. He discusses the difficulties and the joys of pioneering in different places and different contexts. In each episode, Andrew talks to people exploring pioneer mission and discusses ways it is expressed and practiced, by different people each with a different approach.
