"Every fraction of a degree of warming makes a difference to human health and access to food and fresh water, to the extinction of animals and plants, to the survival of coral reefs and marine life."

September is the month chosen in the Christian calendar to celebrate creation.  This year's theme is Passing on the Planet to our young people.  Each week has a special focus:

ct_wk1_integrity

ct_wk2_hope

ct_wk3_wisdom

ct_wk4_service

ct_wk5_discipleship

These are all wonderful gifts to pray for in our own development, and to pass onto our young people, in going deeper into our Christian life with a special focus on caring for God's creation.

World Dog Day 26th August 2018

large_ww281299

A good way to celebrate World Dog Day is to look at the sniffer dogs that are helping to fight wildlife crime.

Illegal wildlife trade is devastating animal and plant populations across the world.  90% of Africa's elephants have been poached in the last century.  Sniffer dogs are the latest and most effective way of dealing with this crime.  The dogs can sniff out ivory and rhino horns and other illegal wildlife products from containers.

Sign a petition against wildlife crime at the World Wildlife Fund site. (www.wwf.org.uk/

This year we are taking part in a pilot project with RSPB Scotland called "Faith Action For Nature".

Faith for nature

We are looking forward to getting involved in this fascinating project.

World Environment Day - 5th June

Theme - Beat Plastic Pollution

If you can't re-use it - refuse it

It is great to see that the Scottish Government is taking a lead - and is banning single-use plastic cups in its buildings from 4th June.  This will save 450,000 cups being sent to landfill.

Jackson's Wild Flower Garden

Wild flowers have been planted in a patch at the front and back gates.  Keep your eyes open in the next few weeks to see them bloom - hopefully!

June 8th is World Oceans Day.  

Our oceans are teeming with plastic waste - a dire threat to marine life, and also a threat to our own health as we eat contaminated seafood.  Celebrate World Oceans Day by doing something about your own use of plastics.  See tips in "Things to do" section.
