Our first in-person ministry study day for some time was organised by Elaine Garman on behalf of the Continuing Ministry Development Group, and hosted by the welcoming congregation of St John’s, Perth.
Revd Dr Jenny Wright, a former assistant rector in the Scottish Episcopal Church who is now chaplain to the Archbishop of York, challenged clergy and Lay Readers from our diocese to think deeply about the Theology of Climate Change. During the morning all ministers joined St John’s congregation at their midweek celebration of the Eucharist, led by Bishop Ian using the liturgy for Creation.
Prayer stations were set up around the room that had been used for COP26 at St Andrew’s, St Andrews and ministers were invited to engage with them.
A very informative and thought-provoking morning!
