Open-air service at 12 noon this Sunday

Our annual open-air service and family will take place in the grounds of the church this Sunday, September 1st, starting at 12 noon. This Sunday  marks the start of the annual Season of Creation which runs until October 4th (The Feast of St Francis). This year, the theme for the season is biodiversity, God’s web of life in which we celebrate the bonds we share with each other and with “every living creature on Earth” (Genesis 9:10). The Christian family is invited to mark the Season by spending time in prayer and considering ways to inhabit our common home more sustainably. 
 One small gesture you might consider would be to leave your car at home this Sunday and walk or cycle to the outdoor service instead. This event will go ahead regardless of the weather but  Plan B is to retreat to the Parish Centre!
