Try out some of these sample sessions in your community. Here are five sessions suitable for Autumn.
Learn about different trees in your area, and the different gifts in the kingdom of God.
On why the leaves fall in the Autumn, and reflecting on the spirituality of letting go.
A short session on how trees reach for the light, and on Christians as 'children of the light'.
A session in an orchard or around fruit trees - best during fruiting season!
One for a wet day, celebrating the water cycle and where water comes from. Bring an umbrella.

What should I expect?
Come and see for yourself! It'll be a bit like this:
We're a small group with a mix of ages, but mostly young families. Some people come to every session and others drop in now and then. Our gatherings are informal, inclusive, and grounded in nature - we draw on the things we find around us in the park to learn more about God and his world. Gatherings include activities among the trees, all age discussion, Bible stories, and plenty of play. Every week is different, and sessions have included treasure hunts, nest building, stick drumming, snail racing, prayer kites and all sorts.
What if it rains?
The weather hasn't stopped us yet.
We consider Park Church to be an all-weather affair. We've been pretty lucky with the weather, but if it's raining we wear our waterproofs, string up a tarp and carry on. We do recommend wrapping up warm, and being prepared for a little mud.
Who are you?
We're part of Stopsley Baptist Church
Park Church is run by Sam and Sara Hargreaves and Lou and Jeremy Williams. We are members of Stopsley Baptist Church, and if we're not in the park on Sunday morning, we're most likely there.
