Our History

Queen's Bush Rural Ministries was formed in 1986, in response to the interest rate crisis taking place at that time. Affected farm families needed a place where they could get a sympathetic hearing of their story and referral to a lawyer, financial advisor, minister, counselor or other professional able to guide them through their difficulties.

Today leadership and /or financial support come from United Church, Anglican, Lutheran, Presbyterian and Roman Catholic churches in Grey and Bruce. Considerable financial support is also received from many individual donors, rural businesses and rural organizations.
