Help and guidance to live out creation care in our everyday lives.

We aim to encourage and resource Methodists to reduce their own carbon footprint and to empower and equip advocates for creation care and climate justice. This dovetails with work on discipleship and A Methodist Way of Life, as well as Justice Seeking Church.


As Christians, we want all of God’s created Kingdom not just to survive but to flourish.

As Christians, we believe that God doesn’t just promise life, but life in all its fullness. We want all of God’s created Kingdom not just to survive but to flourish. 

God created not just humans, but every animal and plant. It’s only by recognising that we are part of creation and caring for the world around us that all creation can flourish.
