ST. PETER’S TREE PLANTING PROJECT 2021 


"The UK has pledged to be carbon neutral by 2050. There is one solution for removing CO2 from the atmosphere – and it could be our most powerful weapon in the fight against climate change – planting trees. 


Trees are the ultimate carbon capture and storage machines. Like great carbon sinks, woods and forests absorb atmospheric carbon and lock it up for centuries. And trees do more than just capture carbon. They also fight the cruel effects of a changing climate. They can help: Prevent flooding Reduce city temperature Reduce pollution Keep soil nutrient-rich Woods are our allies in the fight against a changing climate, yet just 13% of the UK’s land area is covered by trees (compared with an EU average of 37%). 


The bottom line is, we need more trees and we need to protect the ones we already have.” 

– Woodland Trust 


St. Peter’s Church is playing its part in this project by helping people to plant trees in Roydon this year. 


We have bought a selection of trees to donate to residents to plant in their gardens. The trees are all be native grown and from the Woodland Trust.

                 The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Archbishop of York invite the nation to pause, pray and remember the 100,000 people across the UK who have lost their lives to Covid. Starting on 1 February, they invite us to set aside time every evening at 6pm to pray. Resources, including a specially written prayer, have been made available on the Church of England website               

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. - Jeremiah 29: 12.

And whatever you ask in prayer you will receive, if you have Faith. - Matthew 21: 22.
