Being rural & ecumenical is a way of life.


It’s the local ‘on the ground’ relationships that make the difference for our rural mission & ministry: “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” Romans 12:18

All the training & networking we offer is ecumenical and open to all. We partner in this with the Arthur Rank Centre, Fresh Expressions, Churches Together England and others wherever practical. 

The Rural officer is also part of the Joint Public Issues Team, with a brief to advocate for the complex social issues faced by our diverse rural communities. If you're interested in rural representation & having your voice heard, then please sign up to join a Rural Solidarity Circle hereMany of our regional chaplaincy teams operate ecumenically, often also in conjunction with Farming Community Network.
