Rural church conference releases hope in Norfolk
A free conference will be held on Saturday October 8 in Tittleshall, near Kings Lynn focusing on enabling Christians in rural congregations to reach their communities through mission and the re-imagining of their churches and chapels.
The programme for the day will include brief talks from rural churches featuring re-ordering your church; lay led ministry and how to engage your communities in developing your plans. Churches featuring in the case studies include St Mary's at Newton Flotman, St Mary's at Tittleshall and Dickleburgh & the Pulhams Benefice.
Contributions will also come from the Arthur Rank Centre and Rural Ministries. To earth all this information, the afternoon will be spent working in groups on a case study of a Norfolk church which faces the problem of a large, cold building, supported by a tiny congregation, set within a medium sized village.
The conference is being organised by Dreams and Visions, the local expression of a national charity. The ambition of the conference is to inspire and release hope; to share best practice; network and pray. The aim is that participants will leave with actions they can take forward. There is no charge for the day, which will include all refreshments, including lunch.
