Forest Church at New Ferry Butterfly Park

In a first for New Ferry Butterfly Park, local churches recently held a "Forest Church" session there. Many Christians find it helpful to worship God outdoors, linking to God through His natural world. It is also a time to pray for all life, and encourage people to look after the natural world better. This first session (for us) was blessed with sunshine, bees and butterflies. It was organised by Hilary Ash's church (St David's URC, Eastham), but attended by people from a wide variety of local churches. We plan to do something similar again - but the next one will be at St Mary's Eastham (20 November, 3 p.m.), so we have cover if the weather is cold!
