Churches to raise awareness of environmental issues
PUBLISHED: 15:44 15 August 2019
Residents who are passionate about environmental issues, or anyone wanting to learn more about the subject, has been invited to a ‘care of creation’ event in Sidmouth.
An awareness evening, focused on the environment and responsibilities within a Christian context, will be held at St Teresa's Hall at 6.30pm on Saturday, August 31.
During the evening there will be an opportunity for attendees to pledge to a variety of practical lifestyle changes to help become more environmentally active.
There will also be discussions around how the church, as a community of Christians, can make specific changes to renew the town in a way that recognises all creations being of God and therefore 'holy'.
This will be followed by prayers in our churches, including the Catholic Church, on Sunday, September 1 - St Giles' Day - which is being observed as a day of World Prayer for the care of creation.
