As part of the Faith Bridge, Christian Climate Action will be creating a reflective and inclusive space for regular prayer focused on the theme of celebrating and upholding God’s creation.
In honour of Saint Francis’s great love for animals and the natural world we will be using the Franciscan Liturgical hours (involving four daily prayer times).
PLEASE NOTE: Participating in / leading these prayers involves a very low risk of arrest. Do contact us if you would like to chat to someone about this.
Timings and participation
Prayer times will fit with the work day – we want to encourage people to pop by before, during lunch, afternoon and stay for the evening.
- 08.15 – 08.45 Morning prayer
- 12.30 – 13.00 Lunchtime prayer
- 17.30 – 18.00 Evening prayer
- 21.00 – 21.30 Compline
Each prayer slot will be 20 minutes in total using a simplified version of the liturgical hours.
Would you be willing to lead a session and be a witness to Christ’s love and justice?
Everyone is be invited to take it in turns to lead the hours – lay people, ministers, priests, nuns, monks and mendicants of all denominations.
We have set up a doodle poll for you to book a time slot you would be willing to lead between Monday 7th and Sunday 20th October. Unfortunately Doodle only allows each person to book one slot, so if you are willing to lead more than one slot (thank you!) please email Mike Mullins (firstname.lastname@example.org) and confirm which days/slots you can lead.
The Franciscan Liturgical Hours will provide the inspiration and basic structure for the hours on the Faith Bridge, but guidance is provided for those that want to develop their own version of the hours with prayers and reading and hymns. A large bell will be used to call people to prayer and to mourn for the earth.
