Events for June

Events.jpg

In 1992 the world's biggest ever political gathering - the Rio Earth Summit - marked one of the first times that world leaders met to discuss the environment. Twenty years later, they're meeting again for Rio+20 to see how well they've done - and how much more they need to do. In response, A Rocha, Tearfund, New Frontiers and Jubilee+ have set up a series of discussion evenings   to look at the environment in the light of: the Bible basis; the science behind the issues; and how we can all play a part in responding, including calling on decision-makers to act to eradicate poverty in a way that protects the environment.

Whose earth? speakers include Dave Bookless, Ruth Valerio, Andy Lester, Elaine Storkey and Matthew Frost. They will argue that while our faith reminds us that God created the world, we have often failed to care for it as we should. The problems often seem insurmountable, as greed and injustice appear to reign. However, our faith also gives us hope that change is possible.
The series moves around England this month as follows:  Southampton Highfield Church (June 12); Oxford St Aldate's Church (June 13);  the Jubilee Centre, Sheffield (also June 13);  St Nic's Church, Nottingham (June 14); All Souls Church, Langham Place, London (also June 14) and St Stephen's Church, Twickenham (June 20). For directions to each venue, and specific information about which speakers will be where, see the website.

There is no need to book, or any admission fee - those interested may just turn up. Free tea, coffee and cake will also be provided. All events start at 7.30pm.

Seeds is a Christian arts charity that believes that our creativity enables us to see, meet and reflect God. Its primary focus is to run retreat days for Christian artists, enabling them to take time and space to develop their artistic skills and connect with the source of their creativity.

The next of these events takes place in Barnet on June 30 (10am - 4pm) and is entitled Our Place in Eternity. Seeds was established in 1982 and has worked in churches, schools and prisons to encourage creativity within communities, explore creative worship and develop creative resources.
