Oasis Church Grimsby Forest Church

Often people talk about being closest to God when they are outside. On a mountainside, in a valley, or in a wooded grove perhaps. There is no doubt that many of us feel something 'transcendant' when we are in the 'open air Cathedral' of the natural world. Our Forest Church gatherings allow us to explore this together. More ...

Great things come in small packages.

The full majesty of the tree is contained in the small seed. The essence of something fully developed is there inside, and much more – the promise of further multiplications of fruit that can come from the single seed that is allowed to die, (as Jesus famously said in reference to his own path.)

Fire and Fertility

It's been a long winter in the South Hams of Devon. But during the last few days something has changed. We've seen the first swallows arriving from the far South, the trees are beginning to green, daylight is continuing long into the evening, the dawn chorus rings vibrantly over fields carpeted in daisies, and the first aromas of the warmer times to come (we hope) are in the air.
