Dyffryn Clwyd Forest Church

Forest Church Dyffryn Clwyd is about building on our connections with nature.

We might think we are very connected to our surroundings, but think for a moment, when was the last time you stopped to touch a leaf or feel the bark on a tree or run your hands through grass?  The natural world, of which we are a part, is as alive as we are. As children of dust, it is in our nature to be connected to all that comes from it. Often these connections have been lost over time or with our nurture in an environment which sees the outdoors as foreign or dirty as if we could somehow become contaminated by it.

Gatherings for 2014 are planned throughout the year. They will be on or around the third weekend in the following months: March, June, September, December.

We will move around the area known as Dyffryn Clwyd - Hence the name for the group. Each meeting will take place in a space or place which is appropriate to the activity. We may find ourselves in a wood, on the beach, in a field, walking green lanes or making the most of someones garden, churchyard or other appropriate space.

Forest Church begins to explore what it might mean to break down the barriers that we have put up between ourselves and the rest of all that is natural. As we begin to listen, touch and work with the earth lightly with an open mind we may begin to connect to what lies beyond all that we can conceive. We may begin to read and understand what ancient peoples called the ‘Big Book of God’.
