Letters to Creation

'Letters for Creation' project


July is international plastics-free month which links into the work of the Church of England and Christian Aid 'Letters for Creation' project, which states:  “It is at times like these – testing times – that we recognise we are all in this together. Coronavirus impacts all of us, but love unites us all. We are aware now more than ever of how interconnected our lives are and the importance of looking out for our neighbours as well as our common home.”

The Benefice aims to reach out with a visually creative approach based on a seascape on St Mary’s front lawns acknowledging the dangers of plastic in our oceans, rivers and seas.

Everyone is encouraged to donate a ‘Message in a Bottle’ , the more bottles we have the greater the impact of the display. Your message can be anything which fits into a plastic bottle (a prayer, a letter to God, a poem, a drawing or a photograph of your special space – anything! ) and can be left in a big yellow box outside the vestry by 30th June on your daily exercise.  

The display will be ready for1st July: hopefully we can offer a visual message of God’s creation to the local community.
