Event Details

This year EcoCongregation Scotland and the Joint Public issues team (Methodist, URC, UK Baptist and CofS)  combine to provide a bank of resources of real value to congregations, in a variety of current media, to facilitate ‘Creation Time/Creationtide/Season of Creation’ as, with Christians around the world, we dedicate this short ‘season’ to reflection on our often troubled relationship with the Earth.

After a year’s postponement,  the United Nations Climate Conference (COP) in Glasgow in November has become  the stimulating backdrop  to prayer and preaching in 2021, drawing together many churches and faith traditions. Under the harsh glare of  greater awareness of global crisis, the scriptures blossom with meaning and significance as resources for encouragement and reflection.

Congregations in Scotland will value both the challenge of welcome and the legacy: church simply must be “something different” – whilst also becoming even more profoundly communities of authentic prayer and commitment.

It’s an exciting time to be church, and one which requires courage, faith and cheerfulness; perhaps even playfulness as changing  global conditions enable us to delight in  the manifold green threads of the  Bible emerging like shoots of God’s Word for today.

Join us for the launch of this year’s materials via Zoom on Thursday 19th of August 7.30- 9pm.
