As Christ's disciples, we share a welcome duty of stewardship towards all of God's Creation. This is particularly expressed in the fifth Mark of Mission agreed by the Anglican Consultative Council, which directs all Christians to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the earth.

We believe that:

  • Our relationship with the natural environment is integral to our relationship with God
  • Good ecology is a matter of social justice and so is central to what it means to be a Christian
  • Care for the environment should be a key component of Christian living individually, as churches and as a diocese

Our Environmental Policy expresses our commitment to live out these principles, in:

  • Our worship and teaching
  • Our activities, land and buildings
  • Our strategy and planning
  • Our engagement with local communities, government and businesses
