How you can act

Starting out can be the most daunting part of any project.

We can help you get underway on your journey to becoming a more environmentally sustainable church.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.

Getting started

Create an action plan
Use every opportunity to go further

Faith communities are places where those small groups of thoughtful and committed citizens are found. We are not perfect. We are not uniform. But we are communities of hope whose values lead us to work for change …to bring about a more sustainable world.

Steven Croft, Bishop of Oxford

Engaging your community

Be welcoming, active, and tolerant. And have fun.

You will attract people to your church and give them a positive reason to get involved.

Traditional forms of written communication are important
Email is a valuable outreach tool
Don't ignore new technologies
Face to face contact and word of mouth are still key
Be creative
Link in with other themes
Don't forget worship
Films are a great way to gain people's interest and attention
