Taste rainforest chocolate, enjoy striking images from Bolivia and reflect on issues of sustainability, justice and legacy in a week-long programme of events as Dursely Tabernacle URC hosts the Christian Aid exhibition 'Inherit the Earth'. The exhibition launches with a Soul Café evening, when you can hear about Christian Aid's work with indigenous communities in Bolivia from the South West team's Emma Nutbrown, as well as hearing from the URC's West Midlands Synod Mission Enabler Kevin Snyman about what the church is doing to tackle climate change. On Wednesday 26 September there will be a Bible study session exploring our Christian response to injustice and the legacy we leave behind, all based on the exhibition's story. The church will be open 10am-4pm on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 September with refreshments available for anyone to view the exhibition. A special coffee morning will be held in the church on Saturday 29 September from 10am to 12.30pm. The exhibition will close with a Harvest service at 10.30am on Sunday 30 September. A collection will be taken in support of Christian Aid's Harvest Appeal empowering rural women through access to renewable energy. Everyone is welcome to all events which are free and sometimes accompanied by Fairtrade chocolate cake and always by Fairtrade Bolivian coffee!
