 This year the incumbency is supporting rural chaplaincy through its collections at Harvest services. Borderlands is a genuinely ecumenical venture involving financial commitments from both the Anglican and Methodist churches, with chaplains drawn from both denominations, and a joint governance structure established to support our work.

Borderlands Rural Chaplains work in Herefordshire, Shropshire and Eastern Powys.

They are a confidential, listening ear offering pastoral support to farmers, farming families and agricultural communities.
