The day will begin with worship at 10:30am, followed by lunch together, then there will be worship options, then tea with scones, and then closing worship. Everyone is warmly invited to come!
One afternoon option will be to take part in the Deep Time Walk.  Here is the information about the walk which is being led by Paul Graham, Ken and Liz Graham’s son:
I’d like to invite you to join together for a walk with a difference, a Deep Time Walk.

Deep Time Walk is a transformative journey through 4.6bn years of Earth history via a 4.6km guided walk. It is an invitation to view the world differently, encouraging positive action and advocacy for a regenerative Earth. The walk begins with the creation of Earth and then takes a journey through its 4,600 million year evolutionary history, where each metre walked equates to 1 million years. Along the way, it explores important changes in Earth’s evolution and our deep interrelationship with the more-than-human world.
