The Benefice is taking part in 'Live Lent: Care for God's Creation'.  
Archbishop Justin writes: This Lent, we hope both adults and children might engage in God's plea for us to 'Care for Creation'.  It is an opportunity for us to rebuild our relationship with our planet, and in turn with the God who is Lord of everything.
