Season of Creation 1st September to 4th October

  • It is a time that encompasses many harvest festivals in our region and ends with the feast of St Francis of Assisi.
  • As Christians, we acknowledge that the environment is our common home, and we need to tread more gently on the earth and care for our shared planet.
  • This is a special time for us to recall our relationship with the Earth and the Holy.
  • “Celebrating the Season of Creation marks a shift in the Christian understanding of our relationship to creationunder God.
  • The consequences of teaching over recent centuries that humanity has been given domination over creation are clear in the complex environmental crisis we now face.
  • The Season of Creationtide is a time for Christians throughout the world to pray, reflect, and acton issues related to the care of all of Creation, the environment and the world in which we live.”

    — The Rt Revd Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury and the Church of England’s lead bishop on the environment.
