Maybe you would like to add prayers for the environment to your regular pattern of worship, or you are looking for ways to encourage children to explore their faith through the great outdoors, with Forest Church.

Whatever theological resources you are looking for, we hope that you’ll find them here.

Equally, please contact us if you know of something great that we’ve missed out.  We’d love to constantly add to the list!

Creationtide Resources

Creationtide is the period in the annual church calendar, from 1st September to 4th October, dedicated to God as Creator and Sustainer of all life.

Churches often use this time to celebrate Harvest Festival, to thank God for our food, but also to recognise the wonder and fragility of creation.

Find out more about the Season of Creation: www.seasonofcreation.org/about


The theme for Creationtide 2020 is Jubilee For the Earth
