Action on the environment 

It's good to be informed about how we can help care for the environment and join in with others to take action.

The Church of England sends out a regular 'Environment Bulletin', the latest edition can be accessed here with this link.

Below are 2 examples from it:

One year on: Church moves forward on carbon reduction target

The first findings from a nationwide study to capture carbon impacts in the Church of England have been published, a year on from a vote committing the Church to net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.

Read about the results, including the 5% of churches who are already "net zero carbon", plus the practical example of St Andrew's Chedworth School and it's aim to become for net zero.

Young Christians challenge church leaders to do more to address climate change.

The recent "Burning Down the House" survey of young Christians by Tearfund suggests that a large proportion of young people questioned were concerned about climate change, but around two-thirds had never heard a Sunday sermon on the issue. 

The Archbishop of Canterbury said of the survey, "This is an urgent and important challenge from Christian teenagers, calling on church leaders and fellow worshippers to listen, learn alongside them and act with integrity on Climate Change".

Taking part in Climate Sunday and committing to action is one way to respond to this challenge.
