Cowboy & Preacher is a critically acclaimed environmental film that challenges the Christian Right in the United States to take a stand and protect the environment. Filmed by St Peter’s Director of Music, Will Fraser over many years, it focuses on Tri Robinson, an evangelical pastor who has battled throughout his life to spread the message that being a conservative Christian and an environmentalist are not mutually exclusive.
Tri Robinson will be preaching at Choral Evensong at St Peter’s on Sunday 28 October. All are invited. Beautiful music guaranteed, and refreshments will follow the service.
This year’s service has a theme of looking after the Earth and the effect of plastics on God’s creation. It will feature the Young Voices choir, Dilek Taptik’s ballet school and animals from Vauxhall City Farm. Scarecrows made by many local groups will be on display.
