Rural Resourcing Roadshows 2018

The Rural Working Group of the Church of Scotland has been created to resource and support the 43% of Church of Scotland Parishes that are rural.

After a highly successful suite of Rural Resourcing Roadshows in 2017 the working group will be hitting the road again distributing their suite of resources aimed at supporting the rural church. These resources where requested by our members in rural parishes and we use the roadshows to gather guidance on what the pressing needs are and how we can help.

The roadshows are for those interested in, or involved in, rural ministry – ministers and non ministers.

Although this is a free event booking must be completed via Eventbrite.
