lundy churchLinking Christian faith with conservation and enjoyment of creation is the aim of a week-long adventure to Lundy Island.

A Rocha UK are spearheading this special event in May with the St Helen’s Centre. This new facility will promote learning, research and worship on this three-mile-long coastal gem in the Bristol Channel.

Visitors can enjoy daily activities such as the ‘Rockpool Ramble’ and explore the ecological richness of this distinct place with guided walks and talks. They can also choose from a range of extra activities on offer for those who want to delve deeper into the island’s ecological wealth of the island – such as monitoring spring migration and breeding seabirds.

A Rocha UK is a partner with the Lundy St Helen’s Centre project. The island’s Anglican church will be renovated and adapted to integrate ecological education, research and worship.

‘This is the new mission for the parish church of St Helen’s,’ said Chris Baillie, who represents A Rocha UK on the steering group. ‘I’m particularly focused on the relationship between faith and creation appreciation and care. To increase our engagement, this 2015 holiday is a first step towards an annual event which ultimately will encourage A Rocha UK folk – and others – to share in the enjoyment and conservation of the island.’

Dates are 9th-16th May and the guide price is £450. There is limited availability, so people are advised to book their place now. For more information, contact the A Rocha UK office on 020 8574 5935 or e-mail event administrator Jo Clayphan.
