a Wild Church for Edmonton
A "wild church" is a congregation that primarily meets outdoors, in order to help people root spiritually in their place, the environment around them. Recognizing our increasing disconnection from nature, it is a spiritual response to the eco-stewardship, the climate crisis, and reconciliation for indigenous people and settlers.
Rio Terrace Church is in the process of developing a gathering - a wild church - to become stewards for and disciples of the North Saskatchewan Watershed, from its source in the Rocky Mountains, to the Beaver Hills, east of Edmonton.
Check back soon for updates. We anticipate launching gatherings again this Fall, as public health restrictions are changed.
Please note: unless otherwise noted, Wild Church gatherings are free gifts for you to explore your spirituality in nature. However, there is a cost associated with developing and running these programs. Please consider supporting Wild Church financially.
