We are currently planning our first conference, taking place in October this year. Find out more here.
We launched the Growing the Rural Church blog in February this year. We’re hoping to invite as many interesting voices to be part of the discussion about rural church issues. We hope you enjoy reading it, and we’d love to hear from you if you have any questions or comments.
We are really pleased to share our first annual report, Our Year 2017. We have so enjoyed reflecting on our first year and hope you will too. The report will give you an insight into what we actually do in our three areas of work:
- Increase capacity for mission
- Develop sustainable uses of church buildings in partnership with local communities
- Share our learning with others so all can benefit from the project’s resources
We share some of our project stories and our highlights and challenges as we’ve journeyed with some rural mission communities. You can see how we have spent our funds and what we anticipate 2018 will look like. You can also find out a bit more about our team and governance arrangements.
The report is available as a PDF for download here: Our Year 2017.
