Environment Sunday

Home » Newsroom » Environment Sunday

St John's, Chelford, continues their highly successful series of family services at Chelford School on June 7th, with "Environment Sunday" with the Brownies.

The 10 am service will be held in the school hall and there will be coffee and cake to follow.

This will be an informal gathering and it is hoped that residents will take a morning walk to join the congregation of St John's at the school.

The first Sunday in June is the nearest Sunday to World Environment Day and the Christian Ecology Link says that this date has also been chosen because:

  • The time of year — early summer is most suitable for outdoor events. Flowers, butterflies, birds and other wildlife are easiest to see and enjoy.
  • The Wildlife Trusts, a national network of country and regional trusts in Britain, promotes the first week in June as "wildlife week". In this week, many churches link up with their local Wildlife Trust and plan joint events such as nature walks, practical working parties etc.
  • World Environment Day — the United Nations have declared June 5th as World Environment Day.
