15 July – Rural Mission Sunday

Germinate, the parent organisation for Rural Mission Sunday, says: ‘Rural Mission Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate the life of the rural church. We know that rural Christians can and do make a real difference to their communities. However, that is not always how it feels; we can often feel overshadowed by larger urban and suburban churches. So it’s important to stop, reflect on what we do and give thanks.’

This year’s special theme is Growing Together. Churches are invited to consider how they can grow together

  • through prayer and worship
  • through saying ‘thank you’
  • through giving gifts
  • through celebrating your community
  • through extending hospitality
