Calling all outdoor types! Please find below the Eventbrite link to the next Wonder-full that is coming round on Sunday 30th April (gather 15:20 for 15:30 start). Wonder – full Forest Churcheventbrite.com We are returning to the same beautiful spot a few miles west of Banchory where we have the use of a fishing lodge on the banks of the River Dee (about 25 mins walk each way from parking). Directions and a few more details are in the link. Please book so that we know how many to expect. Wonder-full is an opportunity to meet God through connecting with nature and creation all around us. It is for all ages and we will wonder, wander and ponder together. We might sing, hear a story, collect beautiful things, listen to the sounds around and eat together. No matter where you are on your faith journey you are invited. Rev Roger, Rev Jenny and I are delighted that Wonder-full is up

A wonder-full beginning!
