Benefice Environmental Group
The Christian church has generally been slow to recognise that responding to the current global environmental crisis is a key moral imperative. We are called to "love your neighbour as yourself" which can be interpreted as challenging us the western world to become much better stewards of creation for the sake of our unseen neighbours who are most at risk of climate change as well as for the well-being of future generations.
Therefore, a benefice environmental group was established in July 2009 with three aims:
1. Putting our own "house" in order - the group is currently conducting an environmental audit into a wide range of issues in each of our three church buildings to establish a baseline for improvements.
2. Encouraging sustainable lifestyles for individuals and families - several environmental articles have been published in 3 in 1 Magazine and others are planned.
3. Addressing strategic issues with Government, business and the media - by holding our politicians accountable at local, national and international level.
The group has already accumulated a good set of resources which may be borrowed by anyone for private viewing (not for profit) as follows:
