Upcoming Events


Advent Quiet Day at Church of the Woods

December 8th, 11:00 am – 2:30 pm

Join us for a lightly guided half-day of prayers, meditation, journaling and/or art, silence, and nature. Please bring lunch and appropriate clothing for the weather. If you’d like, bring a journal, art supplies, books, or other materials. Make it a longer day by combining this with the 9 am or 3 pm service of Holy Eucharist. Or come for the whole day!


Sacred Ground Exchange

December 14th, 1:00 – 4:00pm  

Sacred Ground Exchange is a group meditation, mutual exchange, and storytelling event where we listen to the land and to each other. These conversations are a means of acknowledging and honoring something that is at the very heart of each of us as creatures of this Earth: a deep and abiding connection to place. Join us as we gather together in conversation to evoke and share the diverse ways that people speak, experience, and engage with the natural world as sacred.

Space is limited, contact Terésa at tgardner@kairosearth.org to RSVP

December 22nd, 3:00 pm

Christmas Eve service of Holy Eucharist

Weekly Updates / Inclement Weather Notices

The winter cold and dark is once again enveloping our little woods-church. Come prepared for cold — though we will be meeting more often in our new and stove-warmed meetinghouse. 

Events and services will be updated here in the event of inclement weather. 

Come sit with the bare trees and evergreens in the quiet anticipation of Advent.

In celebration of the launch of our trail network, please read our Blessing of the Trails
and check out our trail map.
Come for a walk in the woods — maps are available outside the barn!
