The Pioneer Breakout gathering celebrated 10 years in 2018 – and how we celebrated - wisdom from Roy Searle and Jane Alton, some wonderful creative, worship, great networking, listening to one another and the Father and a fantastic cream tea.

The world has changed since the first Breakout Gathering and as a planning group, we have been aware of that for some time. Consequently, we spent some time praying/listening to God and had a sense that we might need to ‘fast’, take some time to reflect for a year from Breakout and reimagine what might be next. Breakout will not happen in 2019.

We will be in touch with the 600 plus people who have been a part of the gathering to invite all of you to help us in the listening process. - your thoughts and reflections or physically through two days

Options are 
London event Feb 4th 4-7pm at Stewardship 
Sheffield Event feb 28th Feb 12-3pm at Church Army Wilson Carlile centre 

We know this will come as a shock and disappointment to some you, but could you help us in the next chapter?

Grace and peace,

John Keskeys, Niki Redsell, Kinder Kalsai, Chris Duffett, Christine Lee, Tim Lea.


A reminder that Breakout has been about;

2018 was our 10 year anniversary.... and we have connected with over 800 pioneers......

We were excited to have Roy Searle who helped us explore ‘Adventures of the Spirit’ as we unpacked the Celtic way of pioneering. He shared the history of celtic spirituality, key saints to help us as we pioneer.

We had sung and reflective worship throughout the 3 days where Ali. Kevin, Lucy and Josi used Body Prayer and percussion to remind us of Gods heartbeat, that is with us all the time.


Space to chat to chaplains and network.  

The workshops helped us in different ways from Stewardship, Creative art, Gong deeper with oy and  one of the workshops was with Jane Alton, who  shared especially in how their idea of the anam chara (soul friend) may be a model for mentoring or contemporary spiritual friendships. It was great to have Jane around to chat over the 3 days.


Thank you to all those who came to the 2018 gathering
