From the Revd Andii Bowsher

Sir, — It is great to see the valuable work that the Revd Mark Broomhead is doing. His matter-of-fact, low-key approach is nicely shown in your report of his chaplaincy to the Bloodstock festival (News, 13 August).

It may be useful to potential candidates for pioneer ministry (whether officially designated or simply de facto) to know that Mark and others doing this kind of work are also in training through the St John’s Mixed Mode course, which combines their curacy with their theological formation.

It is an important part of Mark’s story — and this is echoed in the stories of other candidates — that his training for ordination was made possible by the option of training through Mixed Mode.

I or my colleagues would be pleased to hear from anyone who would like to investigate this training route further.
