Forest Church

There’s a palpable sense of urgency around environmental issues in public dialogue, often reflected by a desire to live in closer sympathy with nature: many religious traditions find inspiration and resources for this in their scriptures and prayers relating to creation.

In 2012, the Forest Church movement was founded in Wales. It's now become a worldwide phenomenon, and is a leading part of a growing movement exploring green expressions of the Christian faith.

In this programme, Mary Stallard visits a Forest Church training retreat held at Cae Mabon in Snowdonia, and hears from Bruce Stanley, co-founder of the Forest Church movement; and Maria Nita, an academic who's been studying Green Christianity for many years.
