Your church and the environment

As Christians, we are called to be good stewards of the earth which God has entrusted to us. We are also called to love our neighbours; this includes our global neighbours who are feeling the effects of climate change first and worst; and our future neighbours, who will inherit this world from us.

These principles are summed up by the Anglican Church’s fifth ‘Mark of Mission‘- ‘To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth’. The Diocese is committed to shrinking its own carbon footprint to Net Zero by 2030 and to encourage and equip churches and individual Christians to understand the fifth mark of mission and put it into practice in their worship, work and witness.
