Welcome to Pioneer

Established in 1985, Pioneer is a network of churches, church hubs and ministries committed to church planting, leadership development, training and the support of innovative community projects.

Billy & Caroline Kennedy, Senior Leaders of New Community, Southampton, lead the network of more than 80 partnership churches of various sizes and with varying structures, that can be found across the UK – with many more associate churches in mainland Europe, Africa, India, Asia, Australia and the USA.

We are committed to building missional church and working in partnership wherever we can. We host a variety of gatherings throughout the year – our Annual Leaders Conference, Summer School of Theology and regular Prayer days – to encourage and support leaders.
