Rural Mission Sunday

July 15

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.

Why not take Growing Together as the theme for your service on Sunday 15 July? Our Rural Mission Sunday resources include:

  • Brief reflections on some key Bible passages that explore different kind of growth in church communities
  • Prayers and songs
  • A suggested service outline

Nicola Grieves, the Children’s and Youth Development Officer for the Eastern Synod of the United Reformed Church, has created an extensive children’s resource for Rural Mission Sunday; focusing on Paul’s image of the Body of Christ it enables children and young people to engage with the ideas of growth and community.
