The Church exists to increase awareness of God’s presence and to celebrate God’s love.
From September 2021 we are focussing on the theme Caring for God’s world.
– We will actively engage with the TearFund Climate Change Emergency declaration process and continue to explore other ways as individuals and as a church to better care for God’s world. (Genesis 1: 27-28)
In response to Climate Change that is now having a devastating effect on all countries, and on the poorest people most of all, we will follow the prepare, declare and impact stages of the Tearfund programme as we first prepare at a personal level; encouraging greater awareness and a greener lifestyle as individuals and as a church. We will then declare at local level with other groups at the start of November to coincide with COP26 Climate Conference, urging and praying for far reaching policy changes and words being put into immediate action by all governments. And we will then continue into 2022 and beyond to make those changes that are within our control as individuals, as a church and at local level, to build a more sustainable world as ‘good stewards of all that God has entrusted to us’.
