The monthly Faith at the Gate gathering at the gates of the Horse Hill drill site will start again on 4 October, after a break in September.
Each month since December 2019, local people of faith, residents and campaign groups have gathered at Horse Hill to stand in solidarity with our Earth and all who defend her and pray for a swift end to extractivism.
During the COVID-19 lockdown measures, Faith at the Gate moved online. The October event will be a hybrid – with some people socially distancing at the gates and others joining via Zoom.
Those going in person will meet at the gates at 7.30pm. Wear a mask and make sure to keep 2 metres from anyone not in your household at all times. Those joining by Zoom, please check the Facebook event page for the Zoom link closer to the time.
The event will most probably involve a song, an inclusive prayer and some silence, so please come along for this symbolic act of solidarity with our earth and protest against its desecration. Bring a tea light and a small square prayer flag.
