Wild Church is a sacred nature-based experience to awaken deep love for self, earth and all living beings for the survival and healing of the planet. It is a new expression of church where Mystery is experienced, not explained. Our programming and worship each day will follow the four directions. Our goal is for participants to experience the Wisdom of the Creator through creation using all senses, to learn to love the land and its occupants as neighbours, and to help change the perspective from “this land belongs to us” to “we belong with this land.”
Rev LeAnn Blackert is in ministry with Wild Church plants in Kamloops, Sorrento and the Okanagan area. Originally ordained and serving in the United Church of Christ/USA, love and a call nudged LeAnn over the border and ultimately into ministry with the United Church in this area.
Lesly Comrie has lived and worked in Kamloops for the past eighteen years. Her spiritual roots were first nurtured in the Anglican Church, later in the United Church and over time in the beautiful wild ecology of places lived and visited.
Michele Walker grew up playing in the mountains of the West Kootenays and has come to love the valley, grasslands and blue skies of Kamloops. Michele’s faith life has been rooted in the Christian tradition in the Lutheran and United Churches.
