Season of Creation

Each year, from 1 September, the Global Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, to 4 October, St Francis of Assisi Day, 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 Earth.

 2017: This year ACEN is partnering 'Green Faith’ with: the Global Catholic Climate Movement, Christian Aid, the Pope’s Prayer network and the World Council of Churches to promote the Day of Prayer and gather resources to assist all faithful people to take part in the Season.
