A summary of our climate change story so far including recent decisions to disinvest in fossil fuel companies
Plans to help churches and schools reach carbon net zero by the end of the decade will be considered by General Synod in July.
A rural church working on its eco credentials has established a relationship with a local environmentally conscious company, to help make caring for God's earth as accessible as possible in its community. All Saints Church in Hoby, near Melton, is hosting a â€˜Real Refills' pop-up shop every fortnight, selling ethically sourced products at affordable prices. The goods include food and cleaning products, bodycare and household items, all without the plastic packaging.
A course for Creationtide, a dash of inspiration from diocesan leading environmentalists, a lockdown-born youth eco club and a whole heap of hard-work from all corners of the community, have combined to help one of our churches achieve an A Rocha Eco Church Award.

Covid restrictions and trying to be Covid-responsible led to churches in one of our parishes coming up with new and engaging ways to use their outside space for mission in their community. St Nicholas and St Hugh, in the Parish of the Transfiguration, Little Bowden, have made the most of their outside space in some of the most difficult times during the last two years.
As the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow is running from 31 October â€“ 12 November 2021 we've compiled a list of resources to help us hold the conference in our prayers.
