Celebrating Christmas in our Rural Churches

We’ve had an exciting and inspiring first year. As we have got to know rural Mission Communities, we have seen how the people of our rural churches are often those with their finger on the pulse of their community. They are there when a lift to hospital is needed, when the cakes need baking or the grass cutting, to welcome people in to Messy Church, and when an offer of prayer makes all the difference.

As Christmas approaches, we are celebrating what our wonderful rural churches are up to by making a video we can share across our diocese. Please see the video below.


For every video we received, we will donate £1 to the Farming Community Network.

Safeguarding Declaration

By sending us your video, you are confirming that those appearing in it (or their guardians) have given their permission to appear on our webpages and social media accounts.

If you are having any trouble playing the video, please contact Flora Searson at Growing the Rural Church.
