Rural mission and ministry can be exciting and enjoyable as well as challenging and demanding, particularly if you haven't experienced living in the countryside before. Germinate has provided training for those new to rural ministry and mission for many years.
This course will help you understand more about the rural contexts in which you are working, explore mission and evangelism in rural communities, and learn about working with children in rural areas. It is an ecumenical course, open to anyone, lay or ordained working with rural churches in the UK.
This is a FREE one day PILOT course for us to test and develop new resources and a new modular approach to training.
You are invited to participate in this FREE training day, learn more about mission and ministry in rural communities and help us shape training for others.
You will be asked for your feedback on what you have experienced as part of the day.
All refreshments including lunch will be provided.
