caring for creation'Caring for Creation'

Following the success of our online Advent course via Zoom, the Mission and Outreach group are proposing a similar format for a Lent study this year. The six session (zoom) study starts on Thursday 18th February at 14:30, and will be repeated on Tuesday 23rd February at 19:00, giving a choice of day and time, and then run on for the following five Thursdays or Tuesdays. Technical assistance is available, so please don't be put off, even with a weak internet signal! Material will be emailed to participants each week. We do hope that many of you will join us for this time of study with our sisters and brothers from across the Chaplaincy.
