2) Making the most of Life Events

3) Using buildings creatively

4) Caring for God's Acre

5) Being the heartbeat of the community

6) Celebrating our heritage

Packed with practical advice and inspiring case studies, How Village Churches Thrive will encourage and increase confidence in all who work or worship in a village church.

All the contributors are active in supporting the growth of rural churches through their roles in the Church of England or through organizations such as the Arthur Rank Centre, the Churches Conservation Trust, Caring for God’s Acre and Praxis.

I live in rural Scotland and, although this book is written from the perspective of the village church in the Church of England, I found many of the suggestions to help a village church to thrive were applicable to our situation.

A gem of a book

A must buy if you are involved in any way in Rural ministry, which is often looked upon as the 'Church if England's 'poor relation.'
