Each year, from 1 September, the Global Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, to 4 October, the Feast of St Francis of Assisi, many Anglicans use the Season of Creation – also known as Creation Time – to pray and celebrate with creation, focus on the story of Earth and commit to a ministry of healing the Earth. Our Sunday School will take up this theme over the coming weeks.
‘We who recognise that all good things come from the Divine Creator have taken too long to acknowledge that the living-out of our beliefs concerns deeply the care and nurture of all living things and the environment on which they depend.’
‘Nous qui reconnaissons que toutes bonnes choses viennent du Créateur Divin ont mis trop de temps à reconnaître que vivre de nos croyances concerne profondément le respect et la préservation de tous les êtres vivants et de l’environnement dont ils dépendent.’
Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town
Many thanks to all who have helped recently in preparing the apartment of Nick Rivier for our use, beginning in September. That is when the Dominican community will start carrying out much-needed renovation work at the Centre Mounier. The Sunday School will then meet at the Rivier apartment and that is where we can go after church for coffee.
We still could use a hand for the few tasks that remain. Please contact the Wardens Pauline Dif 06 76 80 30 17 and/or Anny Samuels 06 67 57 20 56 to volunteer!

From September onwards the Centre Mounier, where Sunday School sessions are held and we meet for coffee after the services, will become a building site, as the Dominican community carries out much-needed renovation work. Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Nick Rivier, a long-term member of our church, we will be able to use his apartment next door to the Centre Mounier on Sundays for Sunday School and coffee. A certain amount of renovation work is needed here and helpers are urgently required over the summer for a variety of jobs, particularly for painting.
If you have some spare time before the beginning of September and can help in any way, please contact
