This advent we are taking as our theme "Worship in the waiting". As we continue…
Perhaps the biggest challenge facing us over the coming years is how to best respond to Climate Change. A recent report by the UN’s IPCC has said that “it is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land. Widespread and rapid changes in the atmosphere, ocean, cryosphere and biosphere have occurred and that the scale of recent changes are unprecedented over many thousands of years.”
How we respond to this challenge, both individually and as a church, is a reflection of our theology in this area, but what is our environmental theology? What does the Bible have to say on the matter? Is the world we live on important to God, and what can we learn from church history about how we should care for creation. Is there more we could, or should, be doing? How do we rescue the earth without worshipping nature?
Sunday 15th August – Climate change and the Bible
A chance to investigate what the Bible has to say about how we treat the planet, how this has been interpreted through the ages and a chance to think about what this might mean for us now.
Sunday 22nd August – Climate Change and the church
An interactive, all age service where we will be looking at practical ways that we can respond as a church and put into practice our creation care.
