River Dart Wild Church

River Dart Wild Church is a pioneer ministry, co-ordinated by Sam Wernham. It is based in the practice of contemplative pilgrimage and is open to spiritual seekers of any faith or none.

Following the launch of the Sacred Waters Way pilgrimage in April 2021, Wild Church meets for monthly meditative pilgrimages on the first Sunday of each month. See the website for information on upcoming walks and for more about the River Dart Charter, which we are carrying with us.

In addition, the Wild Monastics meditative gatherings (alternating between Zoom and in-person at St Mary's Dartington) meet at 5pm on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month (except December) and you are invited to join the ‘monastery of the heart’ for the daily contemplative ‘Prayer of the Heart’ initiative. People from around the world and of any faith or none are pausing for a few breaths or a few meditative minutes ‘morning, noon and night’… or whenever they can manage.
