Wild Church is not just church moved outside. Wild Church is about reconciling with the land and listening to her sacred teachings. At Wild Church people will contemplate beauty, listen to sacred readings,( this month from Wendell Berry) walk listening to the earth and share learnings.
The Wild Church walk in the woods will meet on the Kitsuksus Dyke Walk at the Gertrude Rd. Underpass. We will walk to the Kitsuksus creek bridge.
( There is parking at Blair Park or Margaret Street)
