Event description
We regret that due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have taken the decision to cancel the Rural Churches Forum.

About this Event

The take up has been huge for this event and it will be rescheduled once things are back to normal, at which point we will ask people to book again.

Please note this training is FREE to all those representing churches within the Diocese of Norwich. If you would like to attend from another diocese you will be very welcome but there will be a charge of £20 per attendee.

Churches have a distinct and valued place at the heart of rural communities. However, they also face some unique challenges! You are invited to come to this day, which aims to help rural churches to serve their communities creatively and respond positively to the needs of our times. Because Rural Ministry is a shared enterprise, we hope you will bring along some of the key people from your Benefice; the people who make things happen (up to five individuals in total).

The day will be led by Archdeacons’ Ian and Steven, alongside The Revd Canon Keith James. There will be input from other key individuals, including a representative from the Care of Churches Team. Our Bishops’ will also join us.

The programme will include topics such as:

• Sharing wisdom and good practice

• Different ways of doing Sundays

• Different ways of running meetings more easily (Joint PCCs, joint APCMs etc)

• What can be done more efficiently and legally!

• Streamlining communications

• Quick wins

• Festival Churches

• Diocese of Norwich Churches Trust

• Being an effective Benefice (rather than a collection of parishes)

• Financial issues (e.g. insuring more economically etc)

There will also be the opportunity for you to bring questions for the Archdeacons and if you’d like to send them ahead of time, please email

Archdeacon Ian archdeacon.lynn@dioceseofnorwich.org
