LIVE SIMPLY WORKSHOP

Live Simply Workshop logo

24 June 10:30 – 14:00 @ St Benedict’s Garforth

As Christians, living in the 21st century, how do we care for the earth?

How do we live more simply so that others may simply live?

How do we show our solidarity with poor people both at home and across the world?

Come along to this interactive family-friendly workshop to get some ideas!

There is a separate programme of activities for young people 15 or under. A simple lunch is included. There is no charge for coming along to this workshop but it is essential to book a place.
