An ecumenical team with contributors from the Church of Scotland, the Roman Catholic Church, the Salvation Army, the Scottish Episcopal Church, and the United Reformed Church have put together Creation Time worship materials on the theme of ‘Passing our Planet on: God’s Gift to us’.

Rt Rev Susan Brown, Moderator of the Church of Scotland’s General Assembly, welcomed the resources and thanked the authors, saying:

“We cannot afford to take the world around us and all it contains for granted. We need to celebrate it, care for it and nourish it as people of faith, giving thanks to God for it and looking for His signature in it.

"These resources will enable us to do just that in a variety of ways. Please use, share and enjoy them.”

Adrian Shaw, the Church of Scotland’s climate change officer, said this year’s theme links to Scotland’s Year of Young People.

“It reflects on our planet passing on from one generation to the next, and the gifts given us by God to support and guide us in our care for creation.”

Stretching from 1 September (the first day of the Orthodox Church year) to 4 October (the Feast of St Francis), Creation Time has been dedicated to prayer for creation and the adoption of sustainable lifestyles that reverse our human contribution to climate change.
