Throughout Creationtide, 1st September - 4th October, there will be a daily posting of material to help us reflect on the various themes associated with this period in the Church’s year.
The posts will follow a nine day cycle, as follows:-
- Glory of the Cosmos,
- Earth’s Wonders
- Care of the Planet
- Meditation/ Prayer
- Praise & Adoration
- Jesus, the heart of it all
I hope you will find these notes, prayers, hymns and meditations helpful and that you will feel you want to call in on the site each day. You will be very welcome and as many of the items reflect the biggest challenge of our times (notwithstanding Covid 19), I hope you might encourage other like-minded people to join us on this 34 day pilgrimage.

The justice identified in the last verse, is a critical concept for Christians: over and again, it becomes absolutely clear that it is the poorest who already are, and will keep on suffering most from the effects of climate change and chaos. So if we have any heart for the poor, doing whatever we can to mitigate these effects is our duty as followers of Christ.
Further poems, hymns, songs about Caring for our Common Home can be found at the
