The Earth in Our Hands” is a Lenten study put out by Churches Together in All Lincolnshire Environmental Group and BBC Radio Lincolnshire. Focusing creation care in the Old and New Testaments, the course challenges churches to join together in acting locally and thinking globally.

A Season of Creation provides biblical, liturgical, and preaching resources that focus on the story of Earth. It is committed to a ministry of healing Earth, in partnership with Christ and creation. The site offers a list of readings for the Season of Creation, celebrated during the four Sundays in September prior to the Feast of St Francis of Assisi (October 4), and corresponding bible studies for each year of the three-year cycle. Each text is explicitly connected to the gospel and readers are encouraged to consider the biblical text from the role and perspective of the Earth
