Church is a place where people go to get in touch with their spirituality and connect with something bigger than themselves. Nature is a prime way to do this, so Brian Cox decided to grow a church out of trees. Located in his New Zealand backyard, the church took 4 years to complete.
Cox owns a gardening company that replants whole, live trees. That allowed him to plant the trees anywhere he chose. The tree church is supported by an iron frame and is illuminated by the sun all day long.
Cox says, “I walked out my back door one day and thought, ‘That space needs a church’ – and so it began. I cleared the area in April 2011 and made the iron frame, drawing on all the research I had done over the years of studying churches.” Now Cox can go to church anytime he wants to.
