Welcome to Forest Church York!

We meet in Knavesmire Woods. You will find us using the postcode YO24 1LF and entering the woods between 107 and 109 Dringthorpe Road.  Go straight ahead down the path, and you can’t miss it.

We explore God’s creation in many ways.  There are games to play, minibeasts to hunt, and dens to be made.  There’s always a drink and a snack.  We wonder at the enormity of creation and our part in it, and follow up with prayers or a relevant Bible story to fit our activities.

Parents and carers stay with their children and join in the fun.  It is aimed at primary school children and their siblings, but children of all ages are welcome.

Remember that the woods are full of exciting plants and insects, so we need to protect ourselves.  Long trousers and long sleeves are recommended, as are wellies and waterproofs if the weather has been wet.

During the first lockdown we did a colour hunt for things we can see out of our windows.   Have a look at our Gallery to see photos that people have sent in.
