What does it mean to train for rural ministry?
“Increasingly, it will be very important for people who are working in a rural context to understand the nuances of the tiniest community and congregation, and those of a market town,” says Dr Jill Hopkinson, tutor in rural ministry at Sarum College’s Centre for Formation in Ministry.
Sarum College offers a unique approach to training for rural ministry and mission. The Rural Ministry Pathway was established in 2017 to provide ordination and lay candidates with the insight, knowledge and experience needed to work in contemporary rural churches and communities.
