Creation Time in the Season of Pentecost begins on the second Sunday of September and ends on the second Sunday of October (per ROP 2009, GC40). It is not a church season but a period in which congregations celebrate the fact that creation is an integral part of the whole Christian year. A number of denominations worldwide are including similar "creation times" in their calendars. Orange is the recommended liturgical colour.

A new series of worship services for Creation Time, using a thematic approach and non-lectionary readings. If you would like to write a service for this project, please contact the Worship Desk.
