Welcome to the Parish of Teme Valley North, set in the beautiful Teme Valley. If you are new here, it’s great to see you! Please follow this link to find out more about us.
As I write this we are in the midst of the longest and most intensive heat wave I can remember since the mid-1970s. It’s a great joy for most – though tempers do tend to get a bit frayed now and then when people feel they are about to melt.
During the heat wave, the General Synod gathered at York University to consider a number of things, among them a motion encouraging the Church of England to take an ever greater interest in the absolute necessity to address climate change. The motion urged us to recognise the ‘escalating threat to God’s creation from global warming and climate change, and the suffering caused, particularly to the poor.’
