Creationtide - A thought from Bishop Helen-Ann

Creationtide, a month-long celebration of God’s wonderful natural world runs throughout the month of September until 4th October.  Churches across the diocese have been running special services, exciting events and prayers to celebrate Creationtide, otherwise known as the ‘Season of Creation’. It is a period in the official Church of England calendar dedicated to God as Creator and Sustainer of all life. The season is taking place to encourage Christians throughout the Anglican community to give thanks for the God’s creation and put practices in place to help improve the environment.  The Rt Revd Dr Helen-Ann Hartley, Bishop of Ripon offers her thoughts on this special time of the year and gives thanks for those who work within agriculture in the Diocese of Leeds. If your church wants to get involved in this years ‘Creationtide’ then find some useful resources on the national Creationtide website, including an actions and reflection sheet. Other useful ideas and resources can be found here on the Diocese of Leeds Environment page. Jemima Parker the Diocesan Environment Officer is also available to be contacted for advice and support.
