Climate Change & Christianity: Prayer, Action & Equipping
Climate change is considered by many to be the greatest global emergency of our time. What should or could our response be as Christians? As we love our neighbour and steward our lives, how do we see God’s commission extend to caring for creation and the world at large?
While officials from every country gather for the COP26 climate change conference and discuss deforestation, decarbonisation, extreme weather and more, it can seem overwhelming to know where, as individuals and Christ-followers, to begin. We have put together some resources from our members to help you consider and explore how you might like to take action, from praying into these issues to learning practically how to care for creation and communicate the gospel in light of this global issue.
