Shrinking the Footprint

new StF front page

 The Church of England's national environmental programme exists to enable the whole Church to address – in faith, practice and mission – the issue of climate change.

"Responding to climate change is an essential part of our responsibility to safeguard God's creation. Meanwhile, to love our neighbour - particularly, in this case, our neighbour whom we may never meet but who lives daily with the profound threat posed by this moral crisis - is at the core of what it is to follow Jesus Christ."

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby

See the winners of the Green Church Awards and Green Health Awards. Take a look at this short film on Church of England climate change action from the Climate Reality Project.

Creationtide may have passed but the resources are useful all year round
