Zoom event – Rewilding the Church – a Conversation@the RRC with Steve Aisthorpe
What would happen if the church adopted the environmental concept of rewilding? If it moved away from the dulling effects of strategic control and became more open to the Spirit leading us beyond our capacity to imagine?

Steve’s thesis poses a provocative challenge for us all to rediscover the adventure of faith. Discover what Steve is saying about Rewilding the Church and hear his answers to some of the questions posed by people in the North East who have read the book including
Do readers “get” the idea and, if so, what excites them most about it?
What appear to be the main obstacles to change?
Have Church leaders responded to this idea – if so how?
Are there any Churches actively engage in the rewilding process? Are there any examples we can share?
