Creation Care

At St Mary's we are committed to improving the environmental credentials of our church. 

 

As part of our commitment, we have registered with Eco Church, a project run by A Rocha UK, to improve our environmental credentials in five key areas of church life:

  • Worship and Teaching

  • Buildings

  • Land

  • Community and Global engagement

  • Lifestyle

We have an active Creation Care group that is passionate in supporting the church in its work and sharing the wonder of God's Creation.

UN Climate Change Conference COP 26

Faith Leaders have joined together to demand climate action at COP26 in Glasgow this year.
 
A declaration from representatives of religious communities across the United Kingdom calls for people to be "advocates for justice" against the backdrop of the Glasgow summit.

At St Mary's, we are working out how we can best respond to this message and support the aims of the summit.


In a joint statement in September 2021, Pope Francis, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and Archbishop Justin Welby urged everyone to play their part in safeguarding the future of the planet:

“We must decide what kind of world we want to leave to future generations. We must choose to live differently; we must choose life.”
