Every year the Social Justice Commission resources the church for Sustainable September by preparing worship material for all Uniting Churches in the WA Synod.
In 2017 the theme is “For the beauty of the earth.” Please download from the links below:
World Environment Day 5 June 2017.
Looking for resources to mark this event in your congregation?
There are plenty of resources on the UnitingJustice environment page
The 2016 resource is here! This year we have a bonus worship resource for a Blessing of the Animals!
We have prepared PowerPoint presentations for the 2016 Sustainable September worship resources:
Special Resource: Pray for the Pacific!
The 2015 Sustainable September resource can still be downloaded too.
This material is based on the Lectionary readings, for use in the weeks in September. They enable congregations to reflect on environmental, social and economic sustainability and our call, as God’s stewards, to care for creation.
God’s creation – the earth and all the life it supports – is precious and the earth’s resources exist for the good of all, now as well as for future generations.
The resources include prayers, sermon starters, liturgy outlines, children’s resources, hymn suggestions (drawn from both Together in Song and Australian Hymn Book).
We have prepared PowerPoint presentations for the 2015 Sustainable September worship resources:
