Together, we are the core of the Potting Shed, which is part of the ‘Pioneer Nursery’. We are drawing on a horticultural motif, just as Jesus did, to describe our goal, to provide a safe place, which is nurturing and encouraging for those who sense of call to some form of Pioneering Ministry. We know from our own experience, this sort of ministry can often leave you somewhat out on a limb, isolated, and misunderstood. We firmly believe, that God is calling the church to grow in this way, and so we wish to draw people together, who have a like-mind, who can support one another, share inspiration, pray for one another, and ultimately, potentially work together to plant something that they could not do alone.
