Call to mark World Creation Day of Prayer


Creation Sunday.

Green Anglicans are urging churches to join in with World Creation Day of Prayer on Sunday 1 September.

The day marks the start of an annual celebration of prayer and action to protect creation called the ‘Season of Creation’.

The season, which begins on 1 September and runs through to the Feast Day of St Francis on 4 October, is set to be celebrated by tens of thousands of Christians around the world. Volunteers organise a range of events and activities in their own communities from prayer services to litter clean ups or advocacy actions.

This year’s theme is the ‘web of life’ and resources, available now on the Anglican Communion website, are designed to help churches reflect on the destruction of the web of life and pray for those who suffer most because of that loss.
