Eco-presentation by Sunday School & Young People’s Independent Group
Sunday School & Young People gave an Eco-presentation on the occasion of the farewell service to Archdeacon of Croydon, Chris Skilton, on 19 January.
On Sunday 19th January, the Sunday School led a sermon on saving God’s Creation, the Earth. This Lent we are asking everyone to work together to care for God’s creation and make a commitment to tackle climate change
Some examples of the things you can do this Lent are:
- Give up using single-use plastics e.g. plastic beverage bottles, plastic bottle caps, food wrappers, plastic grocery bags, plastic lids, straws and stirrers, and foam take-away containers.
- Use alternative forms of transport
- Commit to buying no new clothes from unsustainable sources…Sustainable materials are: Linen made from flax; Hemp, another crop; Bamboo; Lyocel; Alpaca; Organic Wool; Silk.
- Try going meat free or reduce the amount of meat you eat: Try Lentil Soup, Crispy Baked Falafel, Vegetarian Tacos, Peanut Slaw with Noodles, Vegetable Paella, Vegetable Lasagna.
- Use less electricity.
- Reduce your waste and recycle more.
- Join the Extinction Rebellion Campaign.
Thank you to Diane and ‘My Time, Croydon’
Holy Saviour Church wants to thank Diane Johnson and her group from ‘My Time, Croydon’ who so generously donated over 30 Christmas gift bags for our church to distribute in our local community. The gift bags contained practical things for getting through the winter such as woolly hats, scarves, gloves, toiletries and a bar of chocolate or two! They were given to members of our congregation for distribution to people they know might appreciate them within our local community.
‘My Time, Croydon’ is based in Thornton Heath and offers a therapeutic approach to adults with learning disabilities and additional physical needs. The group is part of the Surrey & Borders NHS Partnership and Foundation Trust. We are so pleased that the group visited our church twice this year. A huge thank you!
