The Arthur Rank Centre is an independent ecumenical charity that helps UK rural communities flourish by inspiring, encouraging and equipping local churches. We do this in three distinct but overlapping ways:

  • Church Life: supporting congregations with resources for worship, discipleship and the maintenance and creative use of buildings
  • Mission: helping communities flourish by equipping rural churches to identify and meet local physical, social and spiritual needs
  • Training: developing leaders and church members through training programmes, events, conferences and learning communities

Take a look at the wide range of materials designed to support, inspire and help rural churches bring transformation to their communities.

Church Life

Supporting congregations:

  • Worship – a wide variety of materials for rural worship
