Rural Ministries is delighted to be partnering with the Anglican diocese of St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich in 2018 to deliver a new missional initiative. We invited Bishop Mike Harrison, Bishop of Dunwich which includes the diocese of St. Edmunsbury and Ipswich to explain more about the missional process and our partnership.
Where do good missional ideas come from? From listening to the needs of your community of course. What do your members hear in the shop, the school playground, the pub? Andy Lund of Durrington Community Church explains how one initiative came to fruition.
With the help of Rural Ministries, Ben Lucas and his family are on the move and he will be working as a Missional Listener for the next few years in rural Dorset. So, what is it all about? We let Ben explain.
Some people in our communities find churches intimidating and are reluctant to enter. 'Third Spaces' aim to address this. Pete & Kath Atkins explain more about their Third Space - the Open Door, which has been supported by Rural Ministries.
