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.

As the Church must take this challenge seriously, the Diocese of Guildford ​is working with groups, organisations and local authorities to encourage and resource parishes to care for creation and respond locally to the global climate crisis.  the Diocese of Guildford also promotes local church participation in Eco Church, an award scheme to help churches care for God's earth, and became the second Diocese in the country to receive an Eco Diocese award.

"Reducing the causes of climate change is essential to the life of faith. It is a way to love our neighbour and to steward the gift of creation."

Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
