Activity in our church grounds

In response to news that so many species of wildlife are being lost as urban areas increase, St Barnabas is responding by trying to encourge new life to the area.
Large parts of our grounds are being left so that birds, insects and small creatures can make new homes on undisturbed ground.  Wood piles alongside hedges are providing shelter and homes for small animals.  Wild flower areas in the grass help to encourage insects and wild life.  Pathways have been cut through the grass in order that children and visitors may view these areas close up.  A bug hotel for small creatures and insects has been constructed near to the sub station and nesting boxes and homes for hedgehogs are being place in quiet areas. Please come and see what we are doing in our church grounds and by talking to our young people encourage others to get invoved in caring for God’s Creation.
