Outdoor worship is not new, we are all familiar with the ancient practices of beating the bounds, rogation and harvest celebrations and services in our churchyards.  Building on these ancient ways, Wild Church will be introduced in the Hambleden Valley on Sunday 30 May at 3pm and this month will be kindly hosted by Judy and Alistair Hunt, HP14 3HX (near Muzwell Farm), behind Claypit, Moor
Common, Frieth.  Each month we will gather in the countryside for Bible readings and activities as we meet in God’s creation in the beautiful Hambleden Valley.  We will then meet monthly on the second Sunday of the month; for more details please click here. Wild Church is open to everyone of all ages – do join us!
