Items of hope for the environment blessed at church service

Worshippers at last Sunday’s All Together Communion service brought to church items that represent their responses to the climate emergency and the need to take action to care for creation. During the service different items were presented. They ranged from plastic-free wrappers to electric car keys. A prayer of blessing was said and a photo taken of each item.

The Rector, Canon David Hodgson, said: The Sunday was the celebration of Christ’s presentation in the Temple and being recognised as a light to all the world. These items represent light and hope in our present situation. We had the idea of bringing things to church for a blessing because traditionally, on this feast of Candlemas, people used to bring candles to church for blessing by the priest”.
