Biodiversity Bulletin

The 30th June & 1st July   ‘Caring for Gods Acre’ biodiversity and wildflower seminars went well, with nearly 50  attendees in total! The Cumbrian Wildlife  xpert commended Eco- Church and especially the Barrett family for their highly successful Rattle Seed Planting (last autumn on North side of UPC) as it is unusual to have such a healthy crop the first year!!!

Major Milestone for the Marvellous Monument
Mapping Mission!

  “A world-first is set for Cumbria as an innovative Penrith firm will use cutting edge technology to map England’s burial grounds. Atlantic Geomatics based in Penrith has landed it’s most significant contract to date, which will see teams spend the next several years mapping the Church of England’s graveyards to an accuracy of 15 cm. This combined with church records and photographs of headstones, will create an online database which the public can access, revolutionising studies of genealogy for the nation.

(Cumberland & Westmorland Herald 24/06/21)

 We are part of this innovation, as of 30th June, Phase I of the Marvellous Monument Mapping Mission is complete! Volunteers have sent more than 650 gravestone inscriptions and images to be uploaded to Atlantic Geomatics’ interactive map. Although Atlantic Geomatics has already mapped more than 220 churchyards, UPC is the first to be done using ONLY the inscriptions literally “written in stone”. All other online burial  ground projects have been developed using ancient Church Registers. UPC’s monument project began 2 months prior to covid shutdown, when Barrow Archives Centre closed access to the delicate Registers, thus the challenge to consider a “plan B”.

Having clocked 1632 volunteer hours to date, the Monument Mapping Mission’s next phase is to create yet another first for
Atlantic Geomatics; an interactive interior floor plan, detailing 100+ memorials and monument inscriptions, history and images.

Thursday 22nd July will be the next meeting instead of Thursday 15th.

The speaker is Bruxy Cavey, who leads The Meeting House Church in Toronto, the largest congregation in the city – of approx 5,000 on 8 campuses. He is a Refuel regular, having been on the Main Stage for the three years Refuel has happened in person (2017-19).
