Season of Creation 2023
- Let Justice and Peace flow -
Join us as we celebrate Season of Creation, 1 September - 4 October 2023. This annual celebration is a special opportunity to come together in prayer, action, renewed commitment and advocacy for God’s beautiful creation.
In 2023 we come together for Season of Creation at a time of extreme temperatures, flooding and wildfires across the Northern Hemisphere and July 2023 marking the world's hottest month on record. These extreme records are coinciding with Antarctic sea ice dropping to a record winter low, a record that has scientists deeply concerned and has led António Guterres, UN Secretary-General, to state that we are seeing the era of global warming ending and the era of global boiling arrive.
As we hold the deep grief and lament of witnessing these climate ‘milestones’ we know our collective calls for urgent action are more important than ever. Join us this Season of Creation as we commit to taking action together in hope, joining our voices with Christians across the world, as part of a mighty river of peace and justice calling for the protection of God’s beautiful creation.
“But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5: 24).
What is the Season of Creation?
Every year, Christians around the world, from across denominations, commit the month of September as a season to celebrate God’s beautiful Earth, and renew our shared commitment to preserving and restoring that beauty. For the liturgical amongst us, this is called the Season of Creation. Learn more about the history of Season of Creation here.
