St Albans Forest Church

We are an 'Urban Forest Church' as we meet in the centre of St Albans in the church yard of St Peter's Church. That said, it is a large and leafy space with a wild area, growing apple orchard and other things that make it a natural oasis in the city.

We meet at present four times a year on the ‘Celtic quarter days’ or usually the Saturday nearest to them. Our first meeting was for Candlemass/Brigit-tide at the start of February 2013. Our celebrations always have food and drink and sometimes craft activities too in keeping with the season and a Celtic ritual. They are open to all, family friendly and often have people join who are walking past.

However as the core of the group is growing we hope to have further activities like nature walks and storytelling as part of the life of the group.

I was involved in East Midlands Forest Church before moving to Harpenden.  I’m not sure that I’ll manage to get involved here but as I walked over Harpenden Common the other day, I was struck by what a great venue it would make for a Forest Church gathering (lots of sheltered wooded glades).  I realise you meet in St Albans but thought I’d mention it in case you ever wanted to try another venue.
