Visit the A Rocha site here to find out more.
  • Our diocesan podcast Re:Thinking ALOUD discussed the environment and God's creation in a recent episode here
  • York Course - Caring for Creation (new for Lent 2021, available from September 2020) Written by Brian Davis this course look explores the fact that the human race is facing its greatest challenge: global warming, leading to climate change. This, along with the damage we have done, and are still doing to the environment, God’s wonderful creation, means that we all have to make radical changes to our whole way of life. 

Christian Climate Conference - Saturday, 5 September 2020 11am-4pm 

On Saturday 5th September between 11am and 4pm, young people from churches in Leicester and Leicestershire are hosting a virtual climate conference on Zoom! The event is for all ages. You will be able to attend two out of four workshops, listen to reflections and a keynote speaker, which will hopefully help you to get a conversation going in your own churches and help you learn more about why it’s so crucial Christians should be part of the fight against the effects of the climate crisis. Click here to find out more, read about the workshops on offer and book in.

Local churches are encouraged to hold a local Climate Sunday any time during a one-year period starting on 6th September (the first Sunday in the annual season of Creation Time/Season of Creation).

Free resources will be provided to suit every tradition and style of worship.

During their local Climate Sunday, churches are invited to do one or more of three things:

  1. Climate service: Hold a climate-focused service, to explore the theological and scientific basis of creation care and action on climate, to pray, and to commit to action.
  2. Commit: Make a commitment as a local church community to taking long term action to reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions.
  3. Call: Join with other churches and wider society by adding its name to a common call for the UK government to take much bolder action on climate change in this country in advance of COP26, and to strengthen its credibility to lead the international community to adopt a step change in action at COP26. The culmination of the campaign will be a national Climate Sunday event on Sunday 5th September 2021, to share church commitments and pray for bold action and courageous leadership at COP26.

Climate Sunday has been organised by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI) with support from charities including CAFOD, Christian Aid, Tearfund, A Rocha UK, and Operation Noah.
