On Sunday 19th May we will be holding one of our regular ‘Woodland Gatherings’ in the Downley Common area.
We will meet from 3.30pm to depart promptly at 4.00pm, aiming to finish by 5.30pm. Please note the slightly later start time as we are now into the longer daylight hours!
The Gathering will be based entirely outdoors, involving a reflective walk through the woods and fields with pauses for readings and reflection. There will also be opportunity to share bread and wine together in Holy Communion in the woods towards the end of the walk for all those who wish to do so.
Please come suitably equipped for a walk in potentially wet and chilly weather. Sturdy boots or wellies will be essential, even if dry on the day, and some may find walking poles helpful for an ascent up a muddy path in the woods. We will be pausing intermittently for readings and reflections so bring an extra layer if you get cold when standing still. Do bring a waterproof coat, and you may wish to bring an umbrella if it looks likely to rain hard!
Please consider carefully whether you are able to safely manage this kind of terrain.
There is no booking for this event. We will leave promptly at 4pm with whoever has arrived and we will go ahead whatever the weather.
It would be lovely to welcome you to this event. It is an open events to anyone interested.
