Forest Church: connecting with God out in nature


What is Forest Church?

Many people around us find that their most profoundly spiritual moments are when they are outdoors, in nature.

Forest Church is a contemporary movement, with roots in the long Christian tradition of engagement in nature, such as the Celtic and Franciscan approaches. Those engaged in Forest Church are seeking to meet with God in and through their connection with the natural world. The hope is that Forest Churches will become a spiritual home for those outside the traditional church who relate better to outdoor spirituality than gatherings in a church building.

Here at Antrobus we are very fortunate that our governor Rev Christina Westwell is also a member of our local clergy and she is qualified in delivering Forest Church.

She has worked alongside our pupils in small group sessions to connect with God whilst being outdoors surrounded by nature in our fantastic woodland setting.

Rev Christina delivered a whole school worship about Forest Church. She talked about the world God cr4fted and asked us 'What are you going to do about it?' Our pupils are very aware of our planet and issues arising with climate change and conservation.
