New Forest – Forest Church

We meet on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 4pm in the car park of Hatchet Pond, near Beaulieu (toilets available here) *.From here we either walk in the surrounding area or drive to a specific place together.

We begin with a short thought to enable us to draw our heart and focus onto the ‘book of creation’ and the Spirit of God within it, and then spend time walking together in fellowship with one another and alone listening and becoming aware of the voice and movement of the Spirit.

We end by gathering together again to share anything from our time walking, and for a blessing.

The New Forest National Park is 150 square miles of beautiful forest and open heathland scattered with villages on the south coast of England. With wildlife such as its famous ponies and deer, and also donkeys, cattle and wild boar wandering free, it is a place of great natural beauty. Most famously historically it was the royal hunting ground for William 1st, and King William 2nd (Rufus) was killed on a hunting trip here. But the history of the New Forest goes back much further with sites of Roman settlement, Iron age hill forts and Bronze age round barrows.

It would be great to see you sometime, whether you live in or around the New Forest, or whether you are on holiday in the area when we meet. Please ensure to wear appropriate clothes and footwear for the weather.
