Autumn Talks 2018 – Cherishing God’s Earth
We were saddened earlier in the year by the death of John Gordon. John felt passionately about a number of issues but especially about the damage we are doing at present to the environment. He was always keen to encourage people from any background to think about this issue and what it might mean to take greater care of the environment. So this year we have decided to devote our autumn talks to this important issue and the series will be in memory of John. Christian faith offers a number of insights, others also hold some important perspectives. So we hope that this series of three talks & meetings will bring together people from any background or group who want to think about this important issue. All events are on Sundays and start at 15:30 in St Mary’s Church, Wallingford
