"The Challenge which Rural Canada presents to the Canadian Church demands consideration, study and action. This little book is published and sent out by Wycliffe College with the purpose of emphasizing that urgency. The Reverend W.J. Zimmerman, Rector of Kerwood, Ontario, who has been undertaking post-graduate study in Rural Sociology and Religious Education at Columbia University has directed this publication. He secured contributions from a group of Canadian Churchmen who are aware of the claims and needs of Town and Country across the Dominion. -- Preface.

"'The Architecture of Rural Society' consists of a series of lectures delivered at King's College, Halifax, N.S., to mark the establishment of the HacKenley Memorial Foundation in Rural Sociology. The lectureship memorializes a former Archbishop of Nova Scotia, the Most Reverend John HacKenley, D.D., whose devotion to the well-being of the rural population was so great that his name has already become a tradition in that Province". -- Preface.
"At the request of the Memorial Committee the inaugural lectures have been put in a permanent and somewhat abbreviated form in the hope that they may perform a useful service as orientation material for those who may attend subsequent courses under the auspices of the Foundation. .... They contain the mature thinking of a longtime professor of Sociology at King's College and one who has had unusual opportunity for research in the field of rural society". -- Preface.

"The present involvement of the Department of Christian Social Service in the rural work of the Canadian Church dates roughly from 1943 ...". "In the process of reassessing the goals and effectiveness of the rural program it seemed to be appropriate to convene a national conference of rural work leaders of the Canadian church. Early in the planning it was decided that this must be a working conference if it was to accomplish its objective of determining the present state of the rural program of the church and gain any clear insight as to the future direction it must take. Accordingly in November 1965, a Workshop dealing with the Work of the Church in the Rural Areas was held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Approximately eight-five people were in attendance representing twenty-four dioceses and three Departments of General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, the Protestant Episcopal Church U.S.A., the Roman Catholic Church and the United Church of Canada." "This Bulletin is a report of the pre-workshop materials, as well as the papers given, the findings and follow-up of the Workshop". -- Intro.

Prologue
The resolution of the Rural Deaneries of Peace River and Grande Prairie suggesting a Commission on Rural Work was presented by the Bishop of Athabasca.
"The Rural Deanery of Peace River along with representatives of the Rural Deanery of Grande Prairie in the Diocese of Athabasca respectively suggest and request that the General Synod of the Church of England in Canada meeting in Toronto in September 1943 should appoint a Commission on Rural Church Work in Canada with special reference to the Church of England.
1. We would humbly suggest that this Commission should consist of three Bishops, three Priests and three laymen to be appointed by the General Synod in session this Fall, with power given to this Commission to increase its numbers by additional members, the same to be approved by the Primate. The Primate and the Secretaries of the three Boards of the General Synod would be ex officio members of this commission.
2. This Commission should give immediate attention to the formulation of plans for a survey of Rural Life and rural conditions in Canada with special reference to the ministrations of our Church in these rural areas, including the problem of education in rural areas, the important matter of the use of leisure in these areas, the home life, opportunities for advanced training of talented and ambitious young people, the stipends of the Clergy, the condition of the Rectories in which they live, the problem of transportation as they serve their people, the special training of clergy for rural work, etc, etc.
3. This Commission should examine carefully the great and important problem which deals with the place of the farm in our economic life, the financial returns for the labours of the farmer, the conditions under which he lives, etc, etc. This is one of the most important problems facing Canadian life today.
4. This Commission should have the power to co-operate with other Christian bodies within the boundaries of the Dominion as they study these and kindred problems.
5. Other nations and other parts of our Empire throughout the Church have given and are giving special attention to this vast and extremely important subject. Our Sister Church in the United States held its first Rural Church Conference in 1923. In 1924 a Division of Rural Work of the National Council was organized and a full-time secretary of Rural Work appointed. A special publication was issued regularly - The Rural Messenger. In 1925 the General Convention of the Episcopal Church appointed standing Committees on Rural Work. In 1928 a Joint Committee on Rural Work was appointed and in 1931, it gave a printed report which is a most valuable document.
In the USA the National Roman Catholic Rural Life Conference has been held annually for twenty years and this Church is giving very special attention to this Ecclesiastical and National problem.
In England at the beginning of this year of 1943, the Church of England along with other Church bodies has instituted a Rural Reconstruction Inquiry. This movement was inspired by the Oxford and Edinburgh Conferences. It is undertaken because the Council believes that all attempts at the social reconstruction of England will be finally void without a revival of the life of the countryside. This involves an awakening of interest among country folk in the needs of the family, the problems of industry, the claims of culture and the place of religion.
The ultimate purposes of the effort are said to be two: first, to secure that as much thought and energy are applied to the problems of villages as to those of towns; secondly, to "aid the Churches to relate their message and activities more closely to the needs and opportunities of rural communities."

Contents: The Country Church and the Rural Problem / By the Rev. G.G. Wright, Rector of Navan, Ont.
"The years of warfare have served to place the importance of agriculture before the people of Canada with a clearness which a decade of writing on the subject could not have produced. .... The war has brought to people's attention the fact that the development of agriculture is fundamental to the national life, and that, for reasons which shall be noted later, the well-being of the farmer -- industrially, economically, socially, and in the religious sphere has a direct bearing on the development of every branch of the national life. The solution then of the rural problem is not a question which concerns only or even chiefly that part of the country but is of interest to everyone who has at heart the national well-being (p. 2)".
Contents divided into sub-sections: Rural Depletion -- Wherein Then Lies the Solution -- Woman's Work -- Social Life -- The Church and the Problem.
