River Dart Wild Church

Wild Monastics is meeting fortnightly in Dartington for silent contemplative prayer and shared reflection. Our theme this year is 'Prayer of the Heart' with inspiration drawn from the classic Christian text 'The Way of the Pilgrim'. We meet in Staple on the second Wednesday of the month (contact Sam for details) and at St. Mary's Dartington (drop in) on the fourth Wednesday, both at 5pm.


Wild Church Pilgrimages return next year, with a launch event on Saturday April 18th 2020 in St. Mary's Dartington, followed by monthly pilgrimages on the first Sunday of the month from May 3rd. We will be returning to our 'Sacred Waters Way', travelling along the River Dart from Dartington to the sea and then back towards the source. Our pilgrimage route is being developed in partnership with Devon Pilgrim, a new initiative from Exeter Diocese' 'Growing the Rural Church' project. We hope to be carrying with us the new River Dart Charter and our keen to visit and collaborate with churches along the way. Thanks to core funding from Dartington Parish Council, we continue to be able to offer our events on a donation basis and all are welcome!
