Pause for thought
With the Reverend Angela Hannafin
"It’s autumn, and although everything in the natural world is slowing down, the rest of life seems to speed up in September. Yes, we’re busy. Back to school, trying to find a new routine and a New Normal in 2020.
I remember an inspiring woman I knew in Paris who reflected that September was for her, “the most creative of times”.
Our environmental policy
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.
