As part of Liverpool Diocese Rule of Life we have become an Eco - Church and have obtained our Silver Award.
Rachel Kiel is our new adult Environmental officer for the church and she is keen to ensure we all do our very best for Gods Creation and ensuring good stewardship as we prepare for the future. Working with a team of youth who are also Environmental officers for St Cuthberts I am sure more things will be posted on a regular basis. We can all do our part so below you will find out some top tips.As part of this we are holding a ECO DAY on September 21st 12 pm This day will look through speakers and workshops at the subject of Food and reducing food waste. We will also have activities for all the family to join in with such as making Eco bricks, Littler picking, Bird boxes and bug houses. We will also have a LOAF (locally resourced animal friendly) meal to begin the day with. This is a Ecumenical day and will include others from our neighbouring churches and mosques.
Do come and join in with us on this exciting day. We will also be celebrating our Environment and what we can do at church on Sunday September 22nd. For the whole of September we are hoping to look at the environment and Creation and have guest speakers for the 14th September 2019.
What can I do?
Here are things you can do to help: What can I do at home, at work or at school to make a difference?
Did you Know?
Did you know that the UK throws away 7.2 million tonnes of food each year?
Most of it could have been eaten.
There are many ways to reduce what is left and make sure spare food is put to good use:
A prayer based on Psalm 4 by Ruth Jarman
“Answer me when I call to you,
O my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
be merciful to me and hear my prayer.”
How long, O men and women, will you turn the glory of the earth into dangerous pollution?
How long will we love the delusion of consumerism and seek the false gods of money and possessions?
Help us to remember that you have set apart the godly for yourself;
that you will hear us when we call to you.
In our exasperation and anxiety do not let us lose hope;
when we have quiet times in the day,
let us search our hearts and be silent.
Help us to live our lives sacrificially and to trust in the Lord.
Many are asking “What is the point? The earth is finished. Who can save us now?”
“Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Lord.
You have filled my heart with greater joy
than when their grain and new wine abound.
I will lie down and sleep in peace,
for you alone, O Lord,
make me dwell in safety.”
