About Us

A context, not a destination

The Anchorage Collective began with a group of long-haul ministers dreaming of a context.

One where they could be a missional community, walking with others who care deeply (or once did) about their vocation.

We dreamed of crafting contexts where others could find they are not alone and be strengthened, encouraged and comforted.

We are committed to the 'iron sharpening iron' principle in Proverbs.

We are dedicated lifelong learners and reflective practitioners of our varying vocations.

And some of us have a 'wicked' sense of humour.

When and How

Regularly and diversely

Our collective goal is not to establish a rigid, back-breaking roster of events, but a suite of bespoke contexts and opportunities to grow.

Our 1:1 contexts and gatherings focus on specific ways or areas of development.

Group gatherings are tailored for particular shared stages or interests.

We consider intentional relating (such as supervision, mentoring and spiritual direction,) retreats and group learning (with good food of course) as part of the glue that will not only connect us, but give us the tools to equip others and establish our own lives deeply in Christ.
