CW79 Online Exclusive: IRCA Conference 2018

‘A great experience – this was my 5th IRCA Conference and it was, by far, the one that gave me most to bring home.’ Roger Greene

Rural churches around the world are in good heart and have great confidence for the future. That was the message from the International Rural Churches Association (IRCA) Conference held in Lincoln New Zealand in April 2018. For six glorious autumn days, some hundred people from around the world, including a group from the UK, met to share stories and experiences and reflect on what it means to be the presence of God in our rural communities.
