Together Apart: A rural church response to coronavirus

a resource from the Arthur Rank Centre

During its almost fifty years of existence, the Arthur Rank Centre has supported Christians, churches and communities through many of the joys and  challenges of rural life. From outbreaks of foot-and-mouth and BSE to the ongoing challenges of extreme weather, we have sought to provide both practical resources and pastoral care for those living, working and ministering in rural communities.

Now we are seeking to respond to the coronavirus outbreak which has so quickly impacted life across the world.

In light of the current ban on public worship in the UK, we will be providing resources for rural Christians and churches to use in their own homes and communities, as well as signposting to a whole host of advice and expertise around many of the range of practical issues we will face over the next few weeks and months.

Our resource hub includes:

Farming and agriculture support, information and resources

Government and denominational advice and guidance

Practical action and providing support

Practical resources, guidance and advice

Resources for children, families and all-age gatherings
