Next Sunday is a Gift day in aid of A Rocha. A Rocha UK is a Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world. We are delighted that Chris Naylor is coming to speak at our Family service. Chris has been Executive Director of A Rocha since April 2010. He joined A Rocha in 1997 working, until 2009, as Lebanon Director where he co-founded the work. He oversaw the habitat restoration programme at the Aammiq marsh, the development of the environmental education project and the field research programme, identifying 11 new Important Bird Areas nationally. Prior to joining A Rocha, Chris had a wide experience of science teaching and schools’ management in the UK and the Middle East, attending Bible College and learning Arabic (in Jordan) along the way. Chris has written a book, Postcards from the Middle East: How our family fell in love with the Arab world was published by Lion Hudson in March 2015. There is a video of him talking about his work in Lebanon on https://vimeo.com/137807328. Please come ready to give generously.
