RCfE Planned Outcomes

Project Outcomes

Within Rural Churches for Everyone, each of the four church cluster groups will have a five person nominated project team consisting of clergy and church and community volunteers drawn from churches across the group.

Each project team will be supported via an intensive consultancy programme to develop a strategy and business plan for the care and development of the churches in their group, and two members of each team will receive additional training enabling them to provide direct church buildings support to churches within their group (8 trainees in total).

In addition, one church in each group will deliver a building improvement project (intended to ‘kick start’ the change and strategic development process across the group), and four churches in each group will achieve an equivalent of the Community Action Northumberland’s facilities ‘Hallmark’ standard.
