The Arthur Rank Centre provides resources for rural churches.
The ARC is an ecumenical Christian charity founded in 1972 to be a focus and resource for the work of churches in rural areas. The ARC leads the Christian churches in their efforts to improve the quality of life of those living and working in rural communities.
We provide hundreds of resources for rural churches , including a comprehensive resource for those involved in Multi-church Ministry. We also run specialist training, such as our popular Rural Ministry Course and CLiRC (Creative Leadership in the Rural Church).
Germinate! is our major day conference on rural church mission and ministry for lay people, clergy and regional church leaders; and the ARC is the hub for the church network of Rural Officers and Agricultural Chaplains
