Environment Sunday is coming up on June 7, and the Diocese of Leeds is marking it with new resources to help churches celebrate God’s Creation.
The day is on the Sunday closest to World Environment Day, which is on June 5.
The theme for this year is ‘Time for Nature’, where we recognise that what we need to live comes from God’s world.
The diocese has produced several resources to help churches mark this day, including a Eucharist celebrating God’s gift of biodiversity and suggestions for sermons and intercessions.
Jemima Parker, Diocesan Environment Officer, said: “Our time in lock-down has helped many of us reconnect with nature, and this year’s World Environment Day theme gives every church the opportunity to offer a message of hope for all creation that focuses on Jesus, the creator and redeemer of all things.
“I hope that this Eucharistic Service for Environment Sunday June 7 helps many to worship and put their trust in Christ in these uncertain times.”
