The Curnow Centre

Ministry in rural contexts brings unique joys and challenges which in turn requires unique creative solutions. The Curnow Centre for Rural Ministry Training exists to equip clergy and lay people to grasp these opportunities and to grow in their ministry.


Through the Curnow Centre dioceses, parishes and individuals around Australia are able to access Professional Supervision, the Australis Certificate which provides a biblical and theological foundation to the Christian faith, and topical workshops on facets of rural ministry.
