Germinate – Arthur Rank Centre
Tuesday 11 – Thursday 13 February 2020
The Rural Ministry Course is designed for lay and ordained church leaders across the denominations entering a rural appointment for the first time, and those already in rural ministry who feel the need for a ‘refresher’. The three-day residential 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 most excellent course I’ve done in the church. Thank you so much for the information and, more importantly, the inspiration.’
Launched in 1982, the course provided training for hundreds of rural church leaders for almost four decades before it was briefly paused in 2017. After a period of review and updating, we are delighted that the course is returning in 2020.
We are running a pilot course Tues 11 – Thurs 13 February 2020, lunchtime to lunchtime (1pm Tues to 2pm Thurs), at King’s Park Conference Centre in Northampton. This course will cost £250 to reflect the fact that this is a pilot; future courses will cost £300 per delegate. The course fees include a one-year subscription to Country Way magazine.
Book via our online booking form, or by contacting Deb Soesan, our office administrator, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (020 7685 3066).
‘Excellent: very challenging and thought-provoking with lots of useful ideas for the future.’
