Rejoicing in & Reimagining Rural Ministry: The Gathering

15–19 November 2021 (Mon–Fri)

Why – A brand new opportunity for rural ministers and missioners to rejoice in and re-imagine ministry in the South West.

What – The Gathering is part of a series of ‘kairos’ events to stimulate rejoicing and reflection, to give space for the emergence of creative responses to God’s mission & ministry in rural South West England. This event will be an immersive experience including rhythms of worship & prayer, hospitality & community, reflection & renewal. Each day will include short presentations to spark discussion and encourage reimagining of our rural ministry and mission.

Who – All rural ministers and missioners from the South West are invited. Our reflections and conversations will be inspired by our partners:  The Brightfield Community, Rural Ministries, fx-Rural.

Where – This is an in-person gathering hosted by Lee Abbey Devon with desires to make the most use of digital communication tools to bring as many as possible into The Gathering.



As part of this series of events we are hosting The Conversation in April 2021, more information can be found here:
