The Great British Spring Clean on the 22nd March – 23rd April has already got backing by The Daily Mail and Chris Evans.
Run by Keep Britain Tidy, it aims for 500,000 people to all join in with a street-cleaning initiative for the sake of environment and wildlife.
Bishop Graham told Premier he picks up litter as he walks his dog but that it was also something churches could easily adopt: “I’m also encouraging, during this period of time, that churches might encourage their communties to take part in a litter pick,
“During Lent this year the Church of England is particularly focusing on the theme of pilgrim journeys…so what about a parish doing a litter pilgrimage, collecting litter as they pray their way round their community?”
When asked why he thought this was something the church should get on board with, he replied: “Because it links very much to the sum of the hearts of our belief in terms of God who, in Jesus, has entered into the world and delights in the richness of creation and in Genesis we’re demanded to care for God’s world, to look after it, to take a great sense of awe and wonder about creation – and any obstruction of that, any adding to the messiness of it through litter, has an impact on the whole sense of creation”.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
