A day for clergy, readers and leaders of worship in local and rural churches

Rev Chris Thorpe is vicar of Shifnal, Sheriffhales and Tong, three different rural parishes in Shropshire, and has much wisdom and experience to share. He has authored several books of worship resources for local churches and ‘Ploughshares and First Fruits’ is the latest published by Canterbury Press. Our day will explore such things as: ! how to develop a programme of festivals and special opportunities to connect with the wider community ! how to draw those inside and outside the church to plan and participate in creating a special service with worked examples ! time working in small groups identifying which topics might be good for their particular setting and working up one of their ideas ! input on how to use invitation, publicity, social media etc
