This innovative and imaginative resource offers learning and worship activities and whole service outlines to help churches engage with the outside world and increase connectedness with the communities where they are placed, whether rural or urban.
Current trends encourage us to reconnect with nature - schools are building outdoor classrooms, 11,000 organizations belong to the Wild Network which encourages children to get outside, while Forest Church, the Eco-congregation and the rewilding spirituality movements reflect this trend in the church.
Definitely not just for energetic outdoorsy types, it creatively blends the Christian year with the natural seasons - such as an all-age Advent outdoor adventure, creating an outdoor Easter garden, kite flying at Ascension, building life-size David and Goliath, going on a prayer pilgrimage, autumn leaves and tree ribbons for remembrance, and much more.
Also included is practical advice on making the most of your outdoor space, including everyone, health, safety and safeguarding.
