Season of Creation

The theme for the Season of Creation 2020 is Jubilee for the Earth. Jubilee is a time of rest for the land from exploitation, and to restore ecosystems and people. This is the season, running to St Francis's day on October 4, when churches and congregations are called to pay special attention to the responsibility of humanity for the Earth and for all that lives upon it. Its start and end dates reflect that it is a shared idea between Western and Eastern Christianity.

Letters of Creation is also a great idea to encourage children and young people to take part.  Children and young people under 30 are invited to write letters reflecting on what caring for creation means to them and how they want their voice to be heard in the climate justice conversation.
