Visit Us Because
We help you take your #oneecostep ….
- Talk to your rector or priest/head of department and get them on side. This is very important.
- Bring together a group of like –minded people, encouraging the involvement of those with expertise and knowledge.
- Be pastoral, not just “conservationist” within a Christian context.
- Start small- don’t try to change the world all at once!
- Consider the ministry in terms of a “head, heart and hands” approach – the head identifies issues, gathers, collates and passes on information, the heart shares the overall sense of urgency and responsibility for God’s Creation and the hands do the practical work.
- Be prepared to talk to your congregation and parish council, school/agency, and if possible have at least one of your group on parish council/committee. (Put a motion to parish council or your parish AGM to make your group official).
- Be prepared to talk to or write to politicians and the public.
- Look for activities or worship services that can be put on at special times, for example World Environment Day (June 5) or Season of Creation (September to October)
- Produce an environmental hint for the pew bulletin/newsletter each week.
- Set up an environmental noticeboard at the back of the church/workplace
- Look at Reducing your environmental footprint for ideas.
