ECO-LENT 2020: Living Simply for Creation

Our Creation Care and SustainabiityOfficer, Revd Marcus Zipperlen, has compiled a series of resources for Lent which focus on the way we live in an age of climate change.

There are four sections, each dealing with a different aspect of creation care and how we can incorporate sustainability into our Lenten observations (and beyond):

 

 

  1. Introduction: Living Simply for Creation
  2. Fasting
  3. Church Actions
  4. Bible Study

The new diocesan logo

The new diocesan logo is now available for use on all diocese-related documents and publicity material. It is free to download and should be used from now on wherever a diocesan logo is required. Please use this from now on instead of the orange flame.

Download the full logo             Download a greyscale version

There is also a smaller version, featuring the dove but without text, for use where the full logo is impractical.
