‘The most excellent course I’ve done in the church. Thank you so much for the information and, more importantly, the inspiration.’

The Rural Ministry Course is designed for lay and ordained church leaders across the denominations entering a rural appointment, and those already in rural ministry who feel the need for a ‘refresher’.

The two-day programme employs a variety of approaches including practical sessions, group work and workshops led by practitioners, and includes sessions on understanding rural contexts, mission and growth, leadership, farming and work with children and young people in the countryside.

The Rural Ministry Course continues to develop & offers a unique rural, ecumenical focus which we’re well-known for here at the ARC. All are welcome to book on & join us, whether involved in lay or ordained rural mission and ministry. We look forward to meeting you in 2024.

Fees are £300 per delegate for the residential course (Terms and conditions apply). Fees include a range of helpful resources.
