Working to tackle the Climate Emergency is an important way of living out our Christian calling to love our neighbour, and also of reflecting God’s inclusive love by caring for creation as a whole. One way we can show this love is to pledge ourselves to take one or two specific actions to reduce our carbon footprint.
And the good news is that almost every action we take will have a positive impact:
Cutting down air pollution will improve health
Saving energy saves money
Eating less meat and more vegetables is good for us
Buying Fairtrade means a better deal for farmers
Large or small, the actions we take come with big practical paybacks for everyone!
Here’s a prayer we can use this month:
Creator God, forgive us for the mess we have made of your planet, for our selfishness and desire to lord it over other people and other living things. Help us to make amends and to treat your beautiful world with respect and care. Amen.
St Mary’s Church continues to be open for worship on Sundays and Wednesdays at 10.00am. Details can be found on our Services This Month page.

I assure you of my prayers for you and your families.
