Small new Christian communities created by pioneer ministers, both lay and ordained, are popping up everywhere - on housing estates, in community centres, schools, cafes, among different age groups and in numerous other contexts beyond the local church.

This practical book is for all who are engaged in this form of ministry and it begins by identifying some basic principles from a wide variety of creative examples of pioneer ministry.

Illustrated with actual examples throughout, it explores

* how to 'listen' to the physical, social and spiritual environment of a local context

* how to discern a community's needs and the appropriate missional response

* how to build a creative team

* the art of the start - how to begin well

* how to build relationships and create community by acts of authentic love

* how to become and stay Jesus-centred

* how to live and tell the gospel in meaningful ways

* how to grow disciples

* how to stay fresh (and avoid rotas!)
