EARTH HOUR 28th March 2015 8.30 – 9.30pm

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wild Fund for Nature [WWF]. This event has been held annually since 2007 and last year more than 10 million people took some part. The Hour begins in Samoa and ends in Tahiti and has grown to include 162 countries and territories. The Earth Hour encourages individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential electricity for ONE hour. The idea is to raise awareness of climate change and to demonstrate that we care about the planet.

The Dean and Chapter have agreed that the Cathedral will participate and our floodlighting will be switched off for one hour. Inside the Cathedral there will be a candlelit meditation and prayer for the planet.

Please join us for ONE Hour to show you care for the Earth!

A Prayer in Lent

To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul
For in you I hope all day long.
However much we may know of your love,
however richly you have blessed us,
teach us to empty ourselves
So we may walk humbly with you
and keep us from falling into sin;
Increase in us a desire
to seek your will and study your word
urgently, passionately and wholeheartedly.
throughout this season of Lent.
Amen.

Prayer for the Week

Lord God,

However much we may know of your love,
however richly you have blessed us,
keep us from falling into sin;
teach us to empty ourselves
so that we may be filled afresh with your spirit.
Increase in us a desire for your kingdom,
to seek your will and study your word
urgently, passionately and wholeheartedly.
throughout this season of Lent.

Amen

Changes to Service Times in Brown Clee Churches

The times of our Sunday services have been reviewed and will alter from February. Although the new time-table will present some changes we hope the new times and alterations (as well as additions)will provide a new opportunity to grow our congregations and offer a greater number of services both on Sundays and, from March, a Mid-week Communion Service. Please come and join us, a warm welcome awaits you whichever church you choose to attend.
