The Season of Creation

The period from September 1st to October 4th is the Season of Creation. We are asked to pray for our world, for the various climate conferences that are happening at this time and that real changes can be made.

CricciethWe should also look at what we do individually. What can I do that makes a difference? Can I walk instead of using the car? Can I produce less waste? 
Perhaps start with something simple and try to keep it up for the full period - it will then become a habit you can continue.
Pray, and ask God to show you how you can make a difference. If every one of us makes a small change the cumulative effect is huge!

IS THERE MORE TO YOUR LIFE THAN THIS?

Questions, questions everywhere but not a space to think?
If you’ve got questions, you’re not alone. Alpha is a space where you get together with others, online, to watch a series of short episodes covering some of the big questions around the Christian faith such as Who is Jesus? How and why do people pray? and What’s the meaning of life? – and then have a chat about it.
