Creationtide or the Season of Creation is the period in the annual church calendar, from 1st September to 4th October, dedicated to God as Creator and Sustainer of all life. This year, as the UK prepares to host the COP26 summit, we will be focussing on Climate Justice through a series of evening talks on zoom.
All the talks will be at 7.30pm and can be accessed through the following link:
8th September: Shilpita Matthews – The work of Operation Noah
Shilpita is on the board of Operation Noah, an ecumenical Christian charity which campaigns exclusively on climate change. Their work is faith motivated, hope inspired and science informed.
15th September: Caroline Pomeroy – Climate Stewards
Caroline has been the director of Climate Stewards since 2013. Climate Stewards believes that we are all called to be good stewards of God’s earth and that voluntary carbon offsetting is a great way to do this.
22nd September: Yvonne Penn – Christian Aid
Yvonne is Christian Aid’s Church Engagement Officer for Wiltshire and will be talking about the impact of climate change on the work of Christian Aid.
29th September: Young Christian Climate Network – the way forward
What can we do individually and collectively to show our support for urgent action on climate justice?
In addition to the regular church services in the benefice, Bishop Andrew will be leading an evening service of God in Creation on Thursday 16th September at 6.30pm, at all Saints’ Church, West Lavington.
