The latest resource for rural churches has recently gone live on the Arthur Rank Centre website at www.arthurrankcentre.org.uk/publications-and-resources/rural-discipleship
Nurture & Discipleship in Rural Churches is an online library of good practice and potential resources for both ordained & lay rural church practitioners, and training or resource providers more generally. It contains:
- rural case studies
- examples of dedicated rural provision
- evaluation of current resources
- unique downloadable course materials for rural lay people & church leaders
- guidance on adapting more generic material for the rural church constituency
This is a free tool to enhance the mission & ministry of rural churches, and will continue to be added to as further material is developed or provided.
It will be complemented in the next month or two with a further online resource, looking at how training and enabling of lay people in rural churches can be best achieved. Again this will be presented as a library of good practice.
