Earth Festival 4th June 2016 : All Saints Belhar
World Environmental Day Celebrations took place in various locations across the globe on the 4/5th of June 2016, and we couldn’t miss that by chance. Green Anglicans with the Diocese of False Bay, Cape Town and Saldanha celebrated the day at All Saints Anglican Parish, Belhar.
The celebrations kicked off with an opening prayer and an uplifting praise and worship. A band from St Mary Magdelene entertained the crowds with amazing sounds that everyone could sing along and dance to.
Rev Shaun Cozett from the Parish of the Resurrection, Bonteheuwel delivered a talk to the young people, teaching them about the value of creation and how they could take care of it.
As part of getting the church’s involved with environmental ministry we had a talent competition on the day where 5 acts were taken up to the finals. Including acts from the hosting parish the contestants gave outstanding performances, the acts did an exceptional job to be original and stay within the concept of care for creation. However with that said they could only be one winner, a Sunday School Group from St Pauls, Durbanville won the competition putting the Diocese of Saldanha Bay on the mark.
We were part of the global action and united to save our planet, be Bright and Green in the corner where you are.
