About Growing the Rural Church

What we do

Growing the Rural Church works to resource rural Mission Communities to creatively use their talents and buildings, and to connect with their unique communities and landscapes to develop sustainable futures.

Our resources are available to guide you through making courageous decisions for the future, and offer detailed step-by-step advice on putting those changes into action.

Who we are

The Diocese of Exeter’s vision for growth includes the Growing the Rural Church Project.  The Project runs for seven years (2017-2023) and is backed by a £1 million grant from the Church Commissioners Strategic Development Fund with additional funding from our Diocesan Synod.
