Meandering with Moses, there’s still time to take to the woods, relish the fresh air and test your map reading skills

3 September 2020

Thanks to all those who have joined in with our little walk around part of a north Leeds wood this week.  The idea of a Meander with Moses came from our Summer series on Church at Home on the YouTube channel each Sunday.

Throughout August we found out that Moses spent a lot of time on journeys, and throughout them while embracing the good and the bad, he needed to trust God… a bit like we all had to do when confronted with ace cartographer Shelley’s unique free-hand map! 

You can still download your map HERE or there are still some paper copies in a box outside church. 

Along our walk there are certain spots where you are encouraged to stop, and ponder a little thought to encourage you to think about Moses’ story as well as your journey with God. 

It was great to hear that some people invited friends and family along with them to do a socially distanced version of the walk. There’s a lot of research to suggest that being in the fresh air and the exercise we get from being outdoors not only does us good but also makes many of us feel closer to God.   

If you have any thoughts or questions about your walk with God then do message me on

Oh and if you have any pics from your meanderings do as Adam and John did and email them to
