The Chaplaincy for Agricultural and Rural Life

Here to support the Rural Church

CARL is a group of lay and ordained people who are knowledgeable and concerned about rural issues. We have an interest in working with farmers and other rural groups as an expression of their Christian witness.

There's lots of content on the site for you to explore but please contact us if you can't find something you need. The chances are we'll be able to help.

Harvest 2020 and the Agricultural Year

With the Pandemic restrictions it is not possible to  have our usual Harvest celebrations. However, we've put together a Harvest video based on Harvest related Bible passages - we hope you'll find it a good way to reflect on God's generosity. Just follow the link to the Worship Resources page.
Here you'll also find all sorts of worship resources to help you create services for the Agricultural year. They range from the familiar to some you might be a lot less familiar with.

We're building the site

Things might look a bit unfinished at the moment but keep coming back and you'll see how we're progressing. There will be lots more content soon.
