Creation Time 2016

Posted in: Comment
Date posted: 12 September 2016

Christians across the world are using this month to focus on care for creation. We know many of you will be taking part in special events and activities to mark this time, and would encourage you in particular to pray for the climate.

We’d also like to ask you to take this one step further. Could you use your Creation Time activities to raise funds for Operation Noah?  Perhaps you could do a sponsored walk or bike ride along the coast or in the woods, or maybe a plant sale. You might stop using takeaway coffee cups – most of which are not recycled – and put the price of a cuppa aside every day during Creation Time. Or could you take a collection for Operation Noah during a Creation Time service?

Operation Noah is dependent on donations for our day-to-day running expenses. We don’t currently have enough regular donations to cover these costs so we live by faith! Your help could enable us to meet our costs for the current year.
