What Muddy Church is....

Muddy Church is a community of churches, groups and people who are looking for ways of connecting with their local community and God.  It is not just about being in a rural, forest or woodland area but finding the treasures within our communities that offer people a space to gather and connect. 


Muddy Church is based around the idea that everyone brings something - it offers places for listening and sharing, acceptance and wondering and requires openess to a community of people all able to see God and to share their lives.

Muddy Church is about discipleship - a journey of faith, growing in understanding of God, developing and being encouraged into deeper relationship with God through informal reflection, natural liturgy and accompanying. 

Muddy Church is not just for Christians - it offers a space where whole families can come together, friends can meet up, those alone can walk with others and people are invited to share their questions and lives.

Muddy Church does not come with set structures, regulations or formats it is based on the idea that each community is different and will need a unique look and approach.  There are spaces of sharing ideas, good practice and support through  being a part of this community.

The approach of Muddy Church is of sharing faith and the basis of this is a Trinitarian God, who has Created and is creating and is present all around us.  A God who has invited us into our communities and to be a part of what is happening within them.

Our Stories

Muddy Church is designed to be specific to your community, we share ideas and inspire each other but then shape that to fit into the individual spaces we are in.  For some people that is based in one place and with a pattern, for others its exploring different locations. 
Muddy Church has different names - Forest Church, Mossy Church, Wiggles and Wellies (okay I made that up, but it's good!)  All of these will have different approaches but some of the same values of being places to seek Spiritual connectedness.
Muddy Church is not a formal organisation but a collection of groups or individuals.  As such all information and ideas are provided free to use but without any liability.  Please ensure you gain appropriate permission, follow good practice and respect the environment.
