Why the environment?

The Church has a biblical basis for caring for the Earth, which God made for his glory and his people’s enjoyment. Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the Earth and its people today, and will impact on every aspect of human life and the natural environment.

The Church must take this challenge seriously, and so the Diocese of Guildford ​is working with groups, organisations and local authorities across the diocese, and encouraging and resourcing the parishes to care for creation and respond locally to the global climate crisis.

“For the Church of the 21st Century, good ecology is not an optional extra but a matter of justice. It is therefore central to what it means to be a Christian.”

Former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

Matthew 13:31
