Join Colette Joyce, Westminster Justice & Peace Co-ordinator, for a circular Tree Walk from Westminster Cathedral, 3-5pm on Sunday 27th June.
Families and children welcome. Free.
Colette will help us reflect on the importance of trees within the Christian tradition and invite contemplation of some of the many beautiful trees within easy walking distance of Westminster Cathedral. As we walk, we will think about the nature and purpose of trees, especially their role in maintaining a stable climate that enables all life on land to exist and thrive.
Trees are essential to life on earth as we know it. They bind soil, remove carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen, as well as providing a home for many species from birds to insects to squirrels.
Along the way we will consider, too, the significance we attach to trees – from the celebratory decoration of the Christmas tree to the solemn prayer before the wood of the cross.
This is an easy level circular walk. There is an option to leave the walk in St James’ Park, if you prefer, or to return to the Cathedral starting point by 5pm.
Advance registration will help us to meet health and safety requirements. Thank you.
The Tree Walk is one of many events – talks, seminars, actions – taking place for London Climate Action Week
