September marks a change in the seasons as we move from Winter into the wonderful transitional season of Spring! We have been blessed with wonderful weather welcoming this season into our lives: beautiful Cape Town days that enable one to forgive winter for all its wet and cold.
In the Anglican Church of Southern Africa we celebrate September as the "Season of Creation", and at St Andrew's we will be using the special collects, readings and Eucharistic Prayer authorised by the Synod of Bishops' for this season over the next five weeks.
Sunday 7 September: Climate Change "Sleeper, awake"
Sunday 14 September: Eco-justice "Walk lightly on this earth"
Sunday 21 September: Water "Water is life, sanitation is dignity"
Sunday 28 September: Creation and Redemption "On Earth as it is in Heaven"
Sunday 5 October: Biodiversity "Our Sister, Mother Earth"
Please join us as we celebrate God's gift of Creation. And, as always, family and friends are welcome to join us: please invite them!
