Churches Together in England Urban and Rural Forum Meeting 11 August 2017 at CTE Tavistock Square, London

“Christians in urban and rural areas have discovered similarities and links across the different contexts in which they work. Following informal discussions about cross-overs and the implications for ministry, Churches Together in England convened and hosted a meeting for members of the Churches Rural Group and the Urban Forum.
