Get Connected

Over the last decade, technology has transformed how most people live, relate and work. It's hard to think of many areas of our lives and work that hasn't been changed by technology, yet it can become too easy to feel isolated despite these advances. Connectivity has never been more important to us. Whether in person or virtually over Zoom, together, we can learn, share, support, pray and grow as we share the good news of Jesus.

Different ways of connecting with RM

Rural Ministries is a growing network of churches, organisations, pioneers, and practitioners united by their desire to see the countryside served by grace-filled people of mission, empowered by God and biblically relevant for the changing context. We invite you to connect with us to learn about our work and share your knowledge, ideas, and feedback.

Becoming part of our Network

As the world becomes more complex, the need for expert support and professional advice when making decisions about church and mission increases. Our network is primarily intended for organisations, churches, pioneers, and practitioners who worship and witness in the rural context and think differently.

Push out even deeper:
Rural Mission Hubs

A call, a conversation, a commitment.

Jesus invited some seasoned fishermen to do something out of the ordinary; to go beyond what they were used to and where they were used to doing it. We believe that the call of God on pioneers and practitioners today is for the same. Come and be part of a larger conversation; hear how we can help you where you are and how you, in turn, could help others.
