Environment and climate change

We believe that responding to climate change is an essential part of our responsibility to safeguard God's creation. Our environmental campaign exists to enable the whole church to address — in faith, practice and mission — the issue of climate change.

We are here to help you take action on the environment. Amazing work is already taking place in churches across the country and we are well placed to share news, tips and resources. 

See our latest infographic outlining our most recent work.


"Reducing the causes of climate change is essential to the life of faith. It is a way to love our neighbour and to steward the gift of creation." 

Archbishop Justin Welby
