How we respond to climate change as Christians is the topic of an upcoming weekend of events at one of our Huddersfield area churches.
Holy Nativity Mixenden are hosting the Doxecology conference on Saturday, May 20, with keynote speakers, workshops and activities exploring creative, political and worship responses to climate change.
Speakers include Joel Payne from Resound Worship, and the Revd Canon Jonnie Parkin from Bristol Cathedral.
Resound Worship will be performing on Saturday evening, including tracks from their album of the same name as the conference.
Resound Worship are a collective of British worship songwriters who write songs that engage heart, mind and soul, and Doxecology is their album written to engage people with the need to care for God’s creation.
Revd Jonnie will then be leading the Sunday morning worship at Holy Nativity, with music from Resound throughout the service, while on Sunday evening the weekend will finish with Holy Nativity’s monthly Rock Mass.
The Revd Robb Sutherland, Vicar at Holy Nativity, said: “Throughout our lifetime we have seen the changing climate become a more pronounced problem.
“With extremes of weather becoming more frequent the way in which we treat creation is having a huge impact on the world around us.
“As a Christian community we decided to promote awareness in our area to encourage people to be more actively involved in promoting our environmental care as churches.
“We hope that through our worship and actions we can all become better stewards as we work towards our goal of carbon neutrality in 2030.”
