• World trekker guides ‘wild’ event

    Wild Wonderful World ImageShe is the only woman to have walked pole-to-pole and climbed the highest mountain on every continent. Now Jo Gambi will take others to greater heights – by leading A Rocha UK’s first ever adventure conference next spring.

    The second British woman to have conquered Everest’s North/North East Ridge, Jo will be giving a key talk at Wild Wonderful World – which is about ‘reconnecting faith, adventure and caring for God’s world’.

    A committed Christian, author and explorer, Jo will enthuse the young – and young at heart – with stories of faith, courage and a determination to make links between adventure, faith and caring for God’s world.

    Run in partnership with Oxfordshire-based outdoor pursuits centre Adventure Plus, the event will include practical options from bushcraft and bonfires, through to kayaking and wildlife trails.



A Rocha UK births Advent podcasts

Churches across Britain are to enjoy a taster of how nature and nativity mix – in a brand new podcast-driven Advent calendar from A Rocha UK.

Through the popular online service Parish Pump, church magazine editors will be able to download written extracts from A Rocha UK’s festive audio clips. Edited transcripts will point to A Rocha UK's dedicated Advent website Hope for the World, where leading lights from the realms of conservation, development and theology share ‘thought for the day’-style seasonal reflections – and rally people to pray for the planet. Among them will be former Director of Kew Gardens Sir Ghillean Prance (pictured) – who has a long association with A Rocha UK.
