Tuesday 15th May 10:15-12:30 - Big problems, bigger answers
We’re messing up the environment, what can Christianity teach us about caring for it instead?

Join A Rocha and the Woodlands House of Prayer Team for a special “creation inspired” service of prayer, worship and communion
Thursday 17th May 10:15-12:30 - Brexit – a new start for rural England?
Brexit offers the chance to change the way we farm our land, find out about the government’s plans and how we can influence them.
Free entry, refreshments provided (donations welcome)
The UK is changing fast. Climate change is bringing new birds, insects and fish to our shores. Some are welcome, others less so. We also have Brexit - and that too will bring changes to how we farm our land, to what protection we give nature and even where we might go on holiday. How as a Christian community can we respond to the speed of changes happening around us? What does the Bible teach us about adapting to and embracing change? Are there practical actions we can take to help ensure the transitions are as smooth as possible for us and for nature?
Join Andy Lester and Rachel Oates for a lively and interactive exploration of the issues and during the afternoon join them for walks, meditation and maybe even a boat trip off the Riviera to look at wildlife!
