Our relationship with nature – the challenge to Christians

10/05/2019 - 12/05/2019 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

It is no secret that the natural world is under immense environmental pressure. Species are disappearing and resources are being depleted. We have degraded the natural world on all continents. This thought-provoking weekend will examine what it is to be a Christian today, faced with difficult choices and overwhelming problems. Where do we find the joy and sustenance to sustain us to bring about a better world for all of life on earth?

Mary Colwell  is an award winning writer and producer of TV and radio programmes on natural history and environmental issues and a regular contributor to ‘The Tablet’.

This retreat runs from Friday 10 May at 7pm until Sunday 12 May at 2pm
