Some links to other Christian environmental and sustainability resources:

OPERATION NOAH ia Christian organisation which provides leadership, focus and inspiration in response to the growing threat of catastrophic climate change endangering God’s creation. It is informed by the science of climate change, motivated to care for creation by our faith and hope in God, and driven by the desire to transform and enrich our society through radical change in lifestyles and patterns of consumption. It is rational regarding scientific insights, responsible in addressing the long term consequences of today’s actions, and radical about future lifestyles.

Operation Noah have produced some excellent materials and initiatives:

Ash Wednesday Statement

Lent / Small Group Study course

Energy Bill Statement

Bright Now Campaign for disinvestment from fossil fuels  and reinvestment in renewable energy sources


A ROCHA is a Christian environmental and nature conservation movement. Our name is Portuguese for 'the rock' - our first initiative was a field study centre in Portugal.

Some of the excellent Arocha resources for churches:

Books

Study material and resource packs 

Eco-congregation is a tool to help churches begin to address environmental issues in all that they do. It is suitable for all kinds of churches to use. It is currently under review and a new version is anticipated soon

Caring for God's Acre provides information on conservation issues affecting churchyards and cemeteries

Shrinking the Footprint is the national Church of England resource on environmental and sustainability issues. The summer 2013 e-news from Shrinking the Footprint has two explicit and one implicit mention of Blackburn Diocese initiatives! 

Some very significant articles about Christians speaking out about Climate Change and taking practical steps to change unsustainable practices at a local level appear in the spring 2014 e-news from Shrinking the Footprint.

An exceedingly comprehensive example of Anglican Churches in England working together to tackle the challenges of climate change is to be found at Ecochurchsouthwest   

The Gleaning Network exists to help  get any produce currently left unharvested, or being ploughed back in, to charities for distribution and sharing
