Season of Creation
The Season of Creation or Creationtide is an annual celebration of prayer and action to protect creation. It is celebrated by Christians of all traditions, and the leaders of faith traditions have encouraged the faithful to participate.
The Season of Creation is celebrated annually by tens of thousands of Christians around the world. Local, volunteer event hosts on six continents organize celebrations in their communities. These range from prayer services to litter clean-ups to advocacy actions.
The season begins September 1, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and runs through October 4, the Feast of St. Francis, who is the patron saint of ecology in many traditions. The theme of this year’s celebration is “the web of life”. You can read more about the history of the celebration by visiting the website: season of creation
Wild Flower Meadow Project
To mark the Season of Creation 2019 Chiswell Green United Reformed Church has decided to develop part of its field as a wildflower meadow. It has been recently well publicised that over the last 75 years Britain has lost 97% of its wildflower meadows with disastrous effects on our wildlife, especially pollinating insects and birds. The National Horticultural Society, The Wildlife Trust and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds are amongst many voices who are encouraging all those who can to plant wildflower meadows—even in the tiniest of gardens. CGURC is delighted to be able to answer that call. On 14th September we will be begin to create our meadow in the church field and invite church members, hall users and Chiswell Green residents to come along and help us at any time from 10.30 onwards . Refreshments will be available all day and children's craft activities will be available 10.30 am—12.30 pm .
