Message from Revd Debbie Brown, w/c 6th September 2021

Dear Friends,
We will soon be celebrating harvest with our Harvest Services and this got me thinking about the food that we eat and the land that is toiled around the world; and how the effects of climate change have an impact on whether we receive good harvest or not. These days the food we eat comes from near and far and with this in mind maybe we could have displays based on produce from around the world. A reminder that we are all part of God’s creation and we all have a part to play in taking care of it. We thank God for all things bright and good.
God bless love Debbie


Message from Revd Debbie Brown, w/c 30th August 2021

Dear Friends,
Holding a Climate Sunday Service (5th September or earlier) is a good way for us to see how we can take long term action on climate change in the significant years ahead. I believe we can play a positive role in improving the environment around us and I would like to see our churches become environmentally friendly churches (Eco Churches). We already have an Eco Synod! By taking part churches will also be able to raise their voices for bolder action by governments in the run up to the COP26 UN climate negotiations, to be hosted by the UK in Glasgow in November 2021. This relates to the Global & Community Engagement sections of the Eco Church programme. The Eco Church scheme run by A Rocha guides churches in England and Wales towards expressing care for creation in five areas: worship; management and Church buildings; management of Church land; community and global engagement; and lifestyle. So let us take action to tackle the integrity of creation.
God bless love Debbie
