Carys Woodley: October 2020
'Forest Church' is church outside, engaging with nature. It's not simply traditional worship outside but it is reflective and inspired by creation. We take time to be and engage using all our senses to connect spiritually to God's creation. This is going to be happening on the third Saturday of each month. Although it is called 'Forest Church', we can meet anywhere outside: in the woods, by canals, in hills or fields etc.
On Saturday 17th October 'Forest Church' is meeting at Maesbrook Methodist grounds at 3pm. All are welcome. Bring a chair, wear appropriate clothes as we meet in all weathers -and bring a facemask.
The November meeting is on the 21st at Welsh End Methodist Chapel at 2pm.
The December meeting is on the 19th at the Moors Methodist Chapel at 2pm. As this is near the year's shortest day, December's meeting we will be reflecting on light .
