Creation care

As Christians...

… we are called to be responsible stewards of God’s creation and gift to us – the planet we all live on. Here on the Island we can see that our climate is changing. 

But elsewhere the changes are already damaging the lives of some of the poorest people on Earth. In 2021 we have seen devastating wildfires, droughts and floods in countries, both rich and poor, right across the globe.

What can we do?

We should be mindful of the impact each one of us has on the environment, which affects not just us here at home but people in other countries too.
How many resources do we consume?
How much rubbish do we create?
Do we choose to drive when we could walk, cycle  or go by public transport?
Do we care?

Christians and climate change - Tearfund videos

Why not take a closer look at the climate crisis and how we as Christians are called to respond?
Tearfund has produced a series of short videos featuring Katharine Hayhoe, an internationally respected Christian climate scientist, responding to questions from key church leaders.

(Though the videos are intended for use with a small group, they are a great starting point for individuals too.)
