Imagine having the opportunity to attend a really helpful seminar on rural mission topics, free of charge, and held at a place just around the corner. How useful would that be? Well, we offer something even better!
We regularly run interactive seminars you can attend from your own home or office, led by experts and free of charge. All you need is a computer, tablet or phone with sound.
Each Webinar is designed to last around 45 minutes. They are held on various days of the week but we have found early Saturday mornings work well.
Video Recordings of Webinars
Following each webinar a video recording will be available on this webiste. Click the links on the left to find the videos and handouts from previous webinars.
Additionally the videos and other useful resources for rural churches are available on our YouTube Channel.
They are designed primarily for rural churches but churches in other locations may find them helpful. They are a must for anyone in leadership in a rural church (lay or ordained), but we recommend encouraging as many people in your church to watch these presentations. This will help implementing any of the ideas you find in the webinar, and reduce possible resistance to change. Share your experience with others and gain the benefits.
"Very Encouraging" "Really helpful" "A great resource", "I am sharing this with our PCC", "Just what I needed for my rural churches", "I'm signing up for the next one", "Really easy to use"
These are just a few of the positive comments we receive after every webinar. If uou have yet to experience one of these webinars, why not sign up for the next one or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more detailes..
We prrovide a link for registration (see above) This will ask for your name and email address. Those registering receive a confirmation email containing a unique link. Shortly before the time and day of the webinar attenders click the link in the confirmation email, then watch the screen. As long as they have sound turned on everything will run smoothly. There is no charge and no third parties will exploit your details.
There will be one or more presenters who will introduce themselves to you. The presentation is by PowerPoint. There will normally be a useful handout that you can download. You get the opportunity to listen again to a recording and to download the slides if you wish.
Rural Sunrise Solutions is happy to collaborate with others who have knowledge of relevant topics and appropriate skills. We are concerned to offer a quality service.
During the Webinar you can type in questions. As many as possible will be answered either during or at the end of the presentation. You may also be asked to take part in a simple poll to answer a question posed by the presenter. At the close there is a short questionnaire and the opportunity to suggest topics of interest to you.
We are always looking out for any new issues and topics so the following is not a complete list but will give you some idea of what is available.
Developing Your Own Mission Strategies

What might discipleship look like in a rural church?
We are still talking with others on the delivery of some of the topics listed above. We are also considering whether there would be interest in a regular series especially for children in rural areas that could be helpful to those whose situation is remote or as a supplement for what is already on offer through the local church.
To ensure you receive information on upcoming webinars the best policy would be to sign up for the Praise & Prayer News and/or to follow us on Facebook.
