As we all enjoy the beauty of creation at this time of year as plants burst into spring-time life, the days grow longer and the air warms up, we turn our attention to God’s glorious creation and our place in being stewards of both it and all the good gifts we enjoy from God.
Creationtide or the Season of Creation is the period in the annual church calendar, dedicated to God as Creator and Sustainer of all life. Along with our themed services and sermons, we will gather for Bible studies and have material on which to reflect during the week in our own personal devotional times.
- October 10: Place of People in God’s World
- October 17: Creation
- October 24: Physcial Resources
- October 31: Harvest
- November 7: Personal Resources
- November 14: New Creation
Bible Studies will be held each Sunday at 11.15am (AEST) via Zoom . The link to join and the material to prepare is available below.
