3 - 9 March 

Buy Nothing Day

This week, anything purchased needs to be able to be recycled, up-cycled or reused! Let's try and limit that waste!
 
This week's challenge is probably the hardest of all the eco-challenges but will help us look at what we do buy and think – where will this end up? Here’s a statistic to make you think: In 2018, the UK generated, well over 26 BILLION tons of household waste - 45%of that was recycled.

For the month of March

ILSC Book Club

March's book is A Thousand Splendid Suns by  is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan's last thirty years - from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding - that puts the violence, fear, hope, and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives - the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness - are inextricable from the history playing out around them.
Join us on 7 April to discuss your thoughts! Whether you've read a little or a lot, we all have something to share. Upcoming reads:
April: Blindness by José Saramago

Eco-Challenge

In the Christian tradition, the time of Lent is a time of self-examination, often through prayer, fasting, penance and giving to those in need. It can be a time to reflect on one's personal relationship with God and our global relationship with God's gift of creation. This Lent, you are invited to take part in 6-weeks of Eco-Challenges as we reflect on how we impact the environment. A different Eco-Challenge will be revealed each Wednesday on our Facebook page and Instagram (with reminders in the Friday newsletter). I hope you'll join us!

From wherever you are

Coffee in the park?

With the new guidelines in England, two people from different households can meet outside for recreation, which can include "a coffee on a bench" But where do you get the best coffee (or tea)? Maybe you'll find one in your neighbourhood.

Feeling a bit ...?

Many of us are feeling a bit weary and fed-up at the moment and may just need some space to talk. If you're feeling a bit down or anxious or sad or on edge or a bit lost in the midst of everything going on around you - remember that the chaplain is here to provide support for you. Feel free to get in touch over the phone or email if you'd like to schedule a time to talk.
