Martin's sermon for Pentecost and Gillian's sermon for Sunday 2nd June 2019

On Sunday 2nd June Gillian gave a sermon/talk looking at what the PCC have been looking at with regards to growth and moving forward.  Part of moving forward is to ensure that we as a congregation are aware of what is happening and how we can all play our part in becoming a people and a place where love works.  We hoped that in that period between Ascension and Pentecost people would be inspired to think and pray about all they have heard and read. 

Then on Pentecost Sunday Martin continued this theme of moving forward and encouraged us to discuss amongst ourselves as part of the sermon what we felt were the priorities.  He will write about this in the July/August magazine. 

His sermon is here and should be read in conjunction with what Gillian wrote the week before.  Please see below.

The Time is Now

As Christians, we seek to put our faith into action by loving and caring for our neighbours and the Earth, our common home. And right now, both are threatened from the impact of climate change.


Urgent action is needed to save God’s creation as we know it. Will you join the mass lobby in Westminster, London on 26 June 2019 and tell MPs that it’s time to act on climate change?

Climate change is devastating the world’s poorest communities right now, as more extreme weather events, from flooding to droughts, drive families from their homes and create food crises.

Whether it’s women like Aster in Ethiopia who struggle to feed their children when the rains don’t come and crops burn on the stalk, or fisherfolk like Lope in the Philippines battling to make a living as climate change brings super typhoons and extreme heat, or pastoralists like Boru whose camels are weak from drought. 

Climate change is hitting the poorest hardest, right now!

Will you join the mass lobby for climate and environmental action in Westminster on 26 June?

We know what we need to do to reverse the trend of climate change and protect people like Aster, Lope and Boru: we need to cut global greenhouse emissions to net zero. The existing UK Government targets don’t go far enough – we need to get to net zero by 2045 to make a difference.

On 26 June, we’ll come together in London to celebrate our faith in action, lobby our political representatives, pray together and energise one another for the challenges to come.

Will you be there?
