Join us as we continue to speak the truth about climate emergency and explore together how we can enable all of God’s creation to flourish.
Our Diocesan Environment and Climate Emergency motion commits us to learning the facts and speaking the truth about our environment, the climate emergency and the action we can take to care for creation. In this section you will find information on the environment in the form of fact sheets and news items as well as links to webinars and other sites.
