Birdsong at Clifton Cathedral
Comment Email Print
¬†Clifton Cathedral is holding a unique event before the summer evenings disappear ≠ or even appear! Come to Worcester Terrace Gardens opposite the Cathedral, between 5pm and 6pm on Sunday 5 August and join top naturalist and broadcaster Chris Sperring, Conservation Officer for the Hawk and Owl Trust, as he guides us as we listen to and identify birdsong. There will be time to reflect on our natural world before we celebrate the Eucharist at 6pm. Chris said: "The wellbeing of the human being is surrounded by the wellbeing of the natural world. No species lives in isolation and that includes us. "Birdsong reflects the health, wealth and wellbeing of our environment. Sometimes there is too much talking and too little experiencing. By allowing ourselves to be immersed in the sounds, sights and smells of the natural world it can help us think about our place in nature" Clifton Cathedral parishioner and the inspiration behind this unique event, Mary Colwell said: "Catholicism believes we can find God in all things. By letting nature infiltrate our hectic lives we can find new and enriching ways to experience God." Everyone is welcome to this free event. Donations towards parish projects most welcome.
