This service marks a great opportunity to gather together to mark Creationtide as we focus on our duty to preserve the gifts we have received in God’s creation and be prayerful and active in our efforts to tackle the climate emergency and campaign for action. We are delighted that Bishop Nick has accepted the invitation to be our guest preacher on this occasion.

A Prayer for Creationtide
During this Season of Creation,
grant us courage to observe a Sabbath for our planet.
Strengthen us with the faith to trust in your providence.
Inspire us with the creativity to share what we have been given.
Teach us to be satisfied with enough
And as we proclaim a Jubilee for the Earth,
send Your Holy Spirit to renew the face of the ground.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
For those of you using Zoom a lot
here is a blessing for a zoom meeting from Rev Martin Wroe.
