In November 2015 Nigel Bailey, Partnership Development Director, travelled to the North of England to visit two Pioneer Connexion sites (Hull and Manchester) to see how they were getting on. Nigel then travelled to Stoke-on-Trent to take in Sunday morning worship and to interview Phil Barber (founding pastor) and Anthony Clowes who is presently the senior pastor there.
These three sites represent:
- A Methodist Church that has been transformed by partnership in Hull;
- A Pioneer church that has planted out into two Methodist churches in Manchester (Kings Church); and
- One of the most successful modern expressions of a Methodist Church plant in the UK (The Potters House in Stoke-on-Trent).
