Pan-Diocesan Creationtide Service

The Diocesan Secretary has written to all All Licenced Clergy, Readers, Churchwardens, Treasurers and Chaplaincy Secretaries:

Dear All

This invitation is to you as clergy, readers and church officers to form a congregation on Zoom but please encourage your congregations to join on YouTube.

I have great pleasure in inviting you to the next in our series of Pan Diocesan Services on Zoom on Friday 18th September at 1800cet (please be online by 17.45). 

This service marks a great opportunity to gather together to mark Creationtide as we focus on our duty to preserve the gifts we have received in God’s creation and be prayerful and active in our efforts to tackle the climate emergency and campaign for action.  We are delighted that Bishop Nick (Bishop of Salisbury and the Church of England’s lead bishop on environmental issues) has accepted the invitation to be our guest preacher on this occasion.

The service will also be transmitted live on YouTube so all members of our chaplaincies can take part.

The liturgy can be found here.
