Event description

Description

In our last conference we explored the basis of Christian Hope. This time we want to begin by recalling that discussion and then go on to look at hopeful, practical farming examples in the lives of some of our members.

We will be looking at the opportunities and challenges for Christian farmers within the context of food from a health planet produced by healthy people. There is much talk of the need for resilience amongst farmers but resilience to what? Government policy, agri-business, financial pressures, recession, changing diets, international trade, climate change or ageing; or all of these?

We will go on to explore the problems of protecting space in which to farm sustainably and hopefully.


We have an opportunity to share in running a session in the Oxford Real Farming Conference at the beginning of January and we hope our own conference will provide inspiration for this.

Speakers to include

  • Mark Betson, the Church of England Rural Officer and member of the Arthur Rank Centre Team,
  • Charles Smith, the retiring leader of the Farming Community Network,
  • John PlumbACF Chairman
  • Adrian CullisACF Co-coordinator
  • We are in discussion with other people.
