Creation Time

In 1999, the European Christian Environmental Network (ECEN), a partner of Eco-Congregation, urged churches to adopt a Time for Creation stretching from 1 September to the feast of St Francis on 4 October. This was endorsed by the 3rd European Ecumenical Assembly in Sibiu, Romania in 2007, which recommended that the period “be dedicated to prayer for the protection of Creation and the promotion of sustainable lifestyles that reverse our contribution to climate change”.

Due to COVID restrictions, in place of our normal Animal Blessing Service, we will hold a Creation Time Service on 5 September which will focus on our care for God’s world.
