"Actions have to change for words to have effect"
Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
Shrinking the Footprint is the Church of England's national environmental campaign. 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.
Sign up to our newsletter for quarterly updates and take a look at our most recent issue to see what we're up to.
‘Creationtide’ or the ‘Season of Creation’ is the period in the annual church calendar (from 1st September to 4th October) dedicated to God as Creator and Sustainer of all life.
To inspire you and help you explore and celebrate Creationtide we’ve pulled together examples of services and prayers from across the Church of England and our ecumenical partners. You can also follow our daily actions and reflections sheet to take you through the season.
