Advocating for the Environment
In June 2014, the Uniting Church Synod of South Australia resolved to:
Encourage the Uniting Church SA Presbytery and Synod and associated entities to renew their commitment to:
a) Model ways of living and working that minimise our impact on the climate;
b) Include matters of environment and lifestyle change in prayer and worship, study, and communal decision making;
Affirm the establishment of a task group to further the work of education, advocacy and research into the climate impact of the church and concern for the environment.
Following on from this, an Environment Action group has been established, consisting of representatives involved in environmental advocacy from around the Presbytery and Synod. These include representatives from Pilgrim, Brougham Place, Christ Church, Morialta, One Tree Hill and others.
If you wish to get in touch with the group, please contact . The group is willing to visit your congregation and speak or workshop with you in any way possible.
