Sanctuary in the Wilderness

CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE DUE TO CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN

Many of us, at some point in our lives, suffer isolation, loneliness, poor health and life events which may lead to a reduction in our well-being. We hope that the activities offered will provide a place for anyone needing a listening ear, a kind word, a new challenge, some company or a change of scene and also for those who can offer to help provide these things.

Take a look below at the variety of events that we run throughout the month. Feel free to come and join us for as many as you would like. If you would like any further information regarding these events please do feel free to contact us at: [email protected]

Open Sky Walks.  All walks depart St John in the Wilderness Church. Bring a packed lunch, water and all weather clothing. Pace is leisurely with short and longer options and leaders front and back.
