The philosophy of Forest School is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through an innovative, long term, educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment

Forest Church is a development of this, using the awe and wonder to engendered by becoming aware of the natural environment to lead us into awareness of God and to Christian Worship.
