Caring churches where all are welcome to know the peace and love of God
22 May 2022
Today is Climate Sunday, when we are reminded that the way we live our lives continues to threaten our very existence, as the world gets warmer and our climate changes. Today we focus our prayers on the need for humanity to recognise the damage it is doing to God's creation and to make the changes to our lifestyle that are needed to care for it rather than destroy it. These prayer points from Pray and Fast for the Climate and A Rocha may help to guide those prayers.
Mental Health Awareness
Many people experience loneliness at some point in their life. Long term loneliness has a detrimental impact on your mental health. We can find it harder to connect, harder to communicate, harder to reach out to others.

The April - May edition of the Village News magazine is out now - full of community group information and activities, as Covid-19 restrictions are eased.
Highlights include the Bardsey Gala programme, a new needle and stitching group and all the services for Holy Week.

Our planet is facing a dramatic change in climate, which according to scientists the world over is a result of human action over the last 150 years, predominantly through the burning of fossil fuels to create energy.
As Christians we have a responsibility to take care of God's creation and the Parish Environmental Policy declares our commitment to do just that.

Words don’t seem to be able to fully describe just how difficult and challenging the last year has been. I continue to struggle with making sense of what we are living through.
