The Care of Creation

20210905_100947

Earlier this year, we were delighted to receive an Eco Church Bronze Award. As part of our commitment to be an EcoChurch, and with the United Kingdom hosting the Conference on Climate Change later this year, today and for the next four Sundays we will be keeping the Season of Creation. This provides an opportunity for us to pray and reflect on giving thanks for God’s creation, but also acknowledging the damage we cause, and focusing on the call for us to take action to protect the earth.

In today’s service we took advantage of the sunshine, and blessed our new pollinator garden. Packets of garden pollinator seeds were distributed and swapped by the congregation so insect life and plant diversity can be encouraged in our own home gardens.
