Rural Ministries


Like us Rural ministries are committed

to planting and growing rural Churches.


It all started for Rural Ministries in the

early 1960's with a vision to provide

housing and evangelise Britain's

villages. At the time little did anyone

know that God would take two seeds,

planted at completely different times

and bring them together into one plant.

Out of the nurturing of those two seeds

came Datchet Evangelical Fellowship

and the joining together of the two-fold

vision of Pastor Herbert Goddard.


Pastor Goddard had a burden for the rural church to remain open. He was saddened as he saw them closing. He was also concerned for the fate of the retired missionaries and their future accommodation. And so the work of Datchet Evangelical Fellowship (now Rural Ministries) commenced.
