St George's Leeds launches new climate training

The climate crisis is being put at the heart of plans from St George’s Leeds for this year, with a new series of training events launching this month.
The free programme of virtual sessions aims to help take individuals and churches on a journey of learning, prayer and action, preparing people to confront the climate crisis head on.
The sessions are in three main strands; climate thinking, carbon detox and climate advocacy, and run from January to July this year.
Ewan Jones, Environment Officer for St George’s Leeds, said: “Christian Aid got it right when they said: ‘right now, millions of the world’s poorest people are feeling the worst impacts of climate change, and experts predict more floods, drought and extreme weather patterns to come. 
“’For those living in poverty, this means more hunger, conflict and insecurity, and a more uncertain future for us all.’
“And, as the Archbishop of Canterbury said, ‘reducing the causes of climate change is essential to the life of faith.’”
St George’s wants to open the events to all across the diocese; for more information, and to book onto the sessions, please click here.
