Pioneer Centres help to resource community based mission in local community areas.They provide entry points for the community and they develop a range of different services and community initiatives. Examples of provision may include; community cafe, skill development, children and youth provision, volunteer placements, support projects and outreach.
Regional Hubs are the central place for developing vision and plans for delivery in order to meet the identified needs in an area/ geographical space.
By nature each Hub will be a reflection of the community it serves but will be based on the key values and principles which underpin ENYP.These are opportunities to create localised areas of youth and children’s work to impact communities. The development of ENYP’s Regional Hubs progress through a number of stages:
ENYP’s Regional Hub in Lowestoft, Suffolk has been running for several years. Delivery has been established in partnership with churches in Lowestoft, and further opportunities to expand and grow are forming – we are excited that these Hubs enable the vision of ENYP to develop in new areas.
ENYP’s Network is based in Norwich and is the executive and administrative centre responsible for ensuring the health and strategy of the Regional and Missional Hubs.
Local partners are local churches who partner with ENYP to work out ENYP’s vision on a day to day basis in a specific local geographical context. These partnerships help to establish the work in local communities and contribute to shaping its growth, direction and development. They also directly see the fruit of the work and celebrate the local stories and experiences. ENYP currently works in partnership with over 30 churches from across several denominations.
