Rural Ministries Courses for 2024

Gather with other ecumenical rural leaders to explore community, mission, evangelism & leadership in your context. There are two sessions - May and October 2024.

Are you pondering the future of your local rural church? Struggling to lead through a season of great change?

Why not join the Rural Mission & Ministry Course?

There are two sessions of the course in 2024:

  • 1-2 May at Yarnfield, Staffordshire
  •  or 2-3 Oct at King’s Park, Northampton

CTE’s Principal Officer for Mission and Evangelism, Rev Dr Ben Aldous, who leads part of the course said: “Since the closure of CTE Rural Churches Group we are keen to continue supporting those working both rurally and ecumenically. The RMC does exactly that, encouraging those in rural contexts to consider afresh the most important elements of rural ministry and mission and helping to support them in the journey.”

This course is run by the Arthur Rank Centre and the Methodist Church but leaders from any of our national Member Churches would be most welcome.

“All of the facilitated content was really useful, but if I had to single out one thing, it was the opportunity to meet and hear from others their experiences in or going into rural ministry.” (Rev John, Methodist minister)

The cost is £300 (full board)
