Environmental Mission Training Day 8th June 2019 - St Mark's, Harrogate

Bishop Paul Slater speaking to the audience

God’s creation is in trouble and consequently so are we. People are speaking up: students coming out on climate strikes; councils such as Leeds, Kirklees, Otley, Harrogate declaring climate emergencies; Extinction Rebellion protests; even David Attenborough has spoken up and called for action. But what would Jesus do? And what should my church do?
