Thankfulness at Bickershaw


Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart – Philippians 4:6


Christians are thankful to God for many reasons firstly, and not least, for the gift of life itself.  Seeing God as the Creator and Sustainer of all things naturally affects how one thinks of and treats the world and all that is in it.  Here at Bickershaw, thankfulness is linked with the idea of stewardship, where mankind’s thankfulness is demonstrated by his good care of the world.
