Christian Aid bike ride

Rev'd Kim Stilwell, wife Stella and friends Roger Rolton and Mark Thompson recently headed for the coast the hard way on a sponsored bike ride for Christian Aid.

The ride, which was fuelled by copious quantities of cake and Jelly Babies en route, took place on 11th and 12th July and included a stopover in Barmouth — a well-deserved break after crossing the pass at Dinas Mawddy near Dolgellau.

Blessed with good weather and the enjoyment of God's beautiful creation, on the second day after crossing the Menai bridge, the trio were relieved to arrive in Holyhead with 20 minutes to spare to catch the train back to Ludlow, arriving close to midnight.

Thanks to generous sponsors, the fantastic sum of around £1500 was raised.

You don't need to lie down on the M25 or chain yourself to a train to make a difference with climate justice. But we do need to recongise that younger generations (that generation that we long to come to church) is looking to us to take Climate Change seriously. For that generation and others, Climate Change is not only a concern but something to be acted upon, now. September 25th, the...
