Meanwhile climate change grows more and more dangerous to the whole planet, a true horseman of the Apocalypse. But it is in these times that the Anglican Communion has the potential not only to be a place of refuge and stability in the world, but a place of transformation, a place where self-interest is converted into service, where fear is transformed into faith, and where enmity and injustice become the love and mercy of the Lord.
Archbishop Justin Welby

Have you got a Parish Environment Representative and Policy?

The Diocesan Synod adopted a new Diocesan Environment Policy in March 2019. You can find out why a new policy was written and adopted here. It is the first step in our endeavour in becoming an Eco Diocese.

Read about the 5 year plan to implement the policy here

We would encourage every church to have a nominated Environment Representative on the PCC and to adopt your own Parish Environment Policy. You can adapt this model to suit your church.
