Cathedral marks Climate Sunday...

St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, is joining 1600 churches across the country to mark Climate Sunday on 5 September. A special service will take place in the Cathedral at 3.00 pm. The service will also be livestreamed on the Cathedral’s Facebook page. A representation of the earth will be suspended in the centre of the building, which was created in part by visitors and children over the summer holidays. This represents a world groaning in pain, tortured by our lack of care and crying out for our help.


The service, which includes music by musicians from across the county, will be led by the Dean, the Very Reverend Joe Hawes and ordinand in training, Anita Rooney. Councillor Julia Wakelam will be reading.


Anita Rooney comments, “Climate emergency is real, and of great concern, but Christians believe that in God, there is hope. During our Climate Sunday service, we will be acknowledging what we as human beings have done to God's creation. Inviting people to make personal pledges to God to change the way we live our lives positively. To pray and encourage us to act more intentionally to tread lightly on God's creation and rejoice in God's power to renew the earth. This service will be reflective, hopeful, and joyful."
