Churches unite to care for creation
A new initiative has been launched in Plymouth to inspire churches to care for God’s creation. ‘Plymouth Churches Green Action’ will act to encourage and resource local congregations across all churches in the city.
The project will cover five key areas; worship and teaching, managing church buildings, managing the land, lifestyle, community and global engagement.
Martyn Goss Director of Church and Society said: “There is an urgent need to wake up to the fact that we are systematically threatening life on Earth for future generations. Loss of wildlife, pollution, climate change, global poverty, and resource depletion are a few of the challenges we face.”
Some churches are already taking action – St. Edward’s, Eggbuckland is a registered Eco-Church; St. Budeaux has community allotments on its land; Hope Baptist church, Sherwell URC, St. Pancras and others all have solar panels; some church schools are members of Plymouth Energy Community.
Plymouth Churches Green Action will involve Anglicans, Baptists, Evangelicals, Methodists, Quakers, Roman Catholics, Unitarians and others.
