Maura & Paul : Pioneer Missioners

Home » Circuit Staff » Maura & Paul

We are Maura Cook and Paul Collins, Pioneer Ministers for the circuit, and have recently started our post at the beginning of September 2020. We have previously worked as Pioneers for the Methodist Church in rural Lincolnshire, working in the local community to connect people together and to the church. In 2020, with many restrictions in place concerning meeting in person, we are very slowly getting to know our new surroundings, and listening and watching for ways God is already working here. We hope to be able to connect people together here too, growing community, but this will probably look very different to ideas we have of 'church' from before the pandemic.
