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. We should be mindful of the impact each one of us has on the environment.

Global heating is causing climate change and damaging lives everywhere. Wildfires, droughts and floods are devastating lives right across the globe.

COP26 - the aftermath

The 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference is over. Decisions have been taken, commitments made, and leaders and delegates have returned to their home countries.

Please pray that all countries will keep the promises they have made. Pray that God will give wisdom to leaders and a willingness to people to make lifestyle changes that will benefit the planet and help those in countries most at risk from the climate crisis.

Some practical steps...

Individual actions can make a difference.

Can we cut down on our use of resources?
Can we reduce the amount of rubbish we create?
Can we recycle/re-use more? 
Can we walk, cycle or go by public transport instead of driving?

Do we care enough to make lifestyle changes?
