Care for God’s world, as core Christian business, is deeply embedded in Christian tradition and Scripture.
Humankind, the earth and all living things are completely inter-connected and part of this exquisitely beautiful, intelligent, diverse creation.
Rather than allowing what we hear about the deteriorating state of the environment to sadden and depress us, we can decide to make some small changes that mean we do not add to the problems, and might even make a difference.

In addition to the website, there are two further ways to keep abreast of environmental news:
- An emailed Information Service provides regular updates about ongoing campaigns of interest to churches, as well as press releases, new developments, shared ideas from other dioceses, etc. Parish and deanery representatives with a particular interest in the environment are especially welcome. The e-Group aims to meet at least once a year over a shared meal – to join this group contact Helen
- A Google chat-room has been used and found to be valuable in the past; if you are interested in this and/ or would be willing to take it on, please contact Helen
