God calls Christians to recognise that the earth and everything in it is an expression of God's grace, and as such we us treat our environment with care and compassion. As Christians we believe that God doesn't just promise life but life in all its fullness (John 10:10).
Hope in God's Future is a report and study guide that calls Christians to transform their lifestyles through studying, praying and acting on environmental issues.
One way for churches to respond is by using the A Rocha Awards scheme to inform discussion within churches about practical measures that they could take to help the environment. It also enables levels of achievement to be awarded certificates at Bronze, Silver and Gold level to recognise their commitment.
Several of our churches are actively looking at this and a number of worship services have been produced to involve congregations (see worship / worship resources).
