Rural Matters

1. Faith in Affordable Housing
This programme was launched recently and is a free web-based resource that gives practical and technical information to churches about how they can use redundant land and buildings for affordable housing.

2. Computers for Rural People
After a short time when the Arthur Rank Centre was unable to supply, we now have a new source, so that "Computers for Rural People" is back in business! We are no longer competing with the special prices offered by specialist shops and discount stores - and can now offer computers at a MUCH LOWER PRICE!
