    Prayer in the Park, 1st Aug 2021

    In the most recent in the series of monthly events Towards COP26, 16 people met on Selkirk Hill on Sunday afternoon, 1st August, to think and pray about climate issues. Being outside in a beautiful green space, rich in flowers, grasses, trees, and running water on a lovely afternoon helped focus our minds some of the issues affecting the planet.
