How can I get there?
The nearest train station is Longfield, just 30 mins from London Victoria or 15 mins from Bromley South. We are happy to arrange lifts for people from the station, there are also several local buses that run from the station to close by St Francis de Sales Church including the 433 and the 423.
What will be reflecting on this year?
This year, we will be reflecting on God’s beautiful creation and also how it has been damaged by human activities. We will think about what we can do in our daily lives and politically to help care for our wonderful planet.
