This year we have witnessed many changes, one of which was the increase in use of our outdoor spaces over lockdown as we all used nature as a form of escape.
All Saints’ Church in Kings Langley have noticed this and have launched a new outdoor service which will encourage people to spend time outdoors and connect with nature.
The service titled ‘Church in the Wild’ will launch on January 3 and there will be a service on the first of Sunday of each month following on from this, with the next service taking place on February 7.
Father James McDonald, team vicar, said that the purpose of the service is to allow everyone to connect to God through the outdoors.
He said: “It is an outdoor service which will move around the churchyard and the village. The idea is to help people connect, pray and think about God through nature and the outdoors.”
Father James added that because of the outdoor nature of the service there is no need to sign up beforehand.
He said: “Because it takes place outside there is no need to sign up beforehand or wear masks, but households will need to maintain social distancing, until government restrictions change.”
Another exciting development for the church in the new year is the re-launch of the Tiny Tots Group which will start again on Wednesday, January 6.
Father James added that after suspending it in March, the help from volunteers, the church and the community means it is now able to restart.
However, the community are encouraged to sign up each week as spaces are limited.
