Welcome to the RTA website


 The Rural Theology Association believes that theology matters and encourages theological thinking on the future of rural churches and on matters of importance to life in rural communities.

Membership of the Rural Theology Association is supported by:

  • the journal Rural Theology published twice a year by Taylor and Francis;
  • the newsletter that is distributed by email four times a year;
  • links into other bodies concerned with rural churches and rural life;
  • internet access to all past issues of Rural Theology.

If rural theology matters to you, we invite you to become a member of the Rural Theology Association. You will join with a growing number of members from across the Christian traditions who witness to the Church at large that the rural agenda really matters.
