Welcome to Rural Missions Solutions
It is our mission to support rural churches in the UK in their mission. We have served rural churches of varous denominations around the UK since 1988 (previously known as Rural Sunrise) but our leadership has wide experience of over 50 years with involvement in researching, writing, teaching and activity in rural ministry and mission. Why not benefit from our experience?
We have worked in all kinds and sizes of village. We realise that rural communities are sensitive areas for evangelism and that getting it wrong is not an option. We can help you get it right.

What are the RMS Distinctives?
We work with all the major Christian traditions.
We understand what makes rural communities distinct. We have experience in working in a wide variety of rural communities from very small to larger.
We understand rural church leadership issues. Our senior staff are experienced in settled ministry in rural churches.
Our costs are heavily subsidised. It costs nothing to start a consultation and amazingly little to get high quality advice and support.
A major focus is working with rural churches to develop appropriate and sustainable bespoke mission strategies. We mostly work with historic denominations. We believe that all churches should be missional but that one size does not fit all.
Our considerable experience enables us to tailor what we can offer to meet the needs of any local church.
We are ready to be flexible. We can offer short term support or, if requested we are happy to 'walk with you' over a period of time until you are comfortable to manage on your own.
We always start by listening carefully to you.
