Parish Council - meets this Tuesday, Sept 21st at 7pm in the upper hall.
The Season of Creation - Up to early October we are in a time of focussing on creation, giving thanks to the Holy One for all the blessings and bounty of the earth. We give thanks for all the creatures and all that grows in this world and reflect on our relationship with our environment and the world around us. The next few weeks, up to and including Harvest and Thanksgiving we will continue to remind ourselves of how dependant we are on the earth and the necessity for its well-being that we may survive and thrive here alongside the rest of the creation. What ways might you be able to express your gratitude for the blessings that come to us?
