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.

Drawing on traditions that go back to the earliest days of British Christianity, and deeply valuing the modern wisdom that tells us how much people benefit from spending time outside, we meet together for a time of story telling, singing, quietness and fun. Like St Francis we join in with creation in expressing our worship to God.

As part of Oasis Church Grimsby, a Forest Church Gathering will be held bi-monthly. See our website or contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) for more details.

Dear Sir,

Father Nick from the Minister Grimsby as mentioned to me little about you. I am a new christian was baptized and confirmed by the Bishop of Lincoln at the Minister.

I have a very strong interest in nature and animals, I was getting a call from God to follow Saint Francis and I prayed to God of a career direction whether to train as an Ecologist or Environmental Lawyer. I was made an unconditional offer at Law School this year but deferred it until I get more guidance from God. I’m currently do an Diploma in Environmental Science.

I would love to find out more information and how to get involved?
