Creation Care

Mountain view through trees with text Creation Care, "the earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it" (Psalms 24:1).
Resources on this page is based on a 4-week discussion series on Creation Care in October 2021.

We have an interest in discovering what our faith in Jesus tells us about caring for creation and how this plays out in our daily lives both as individuals and as church within the wider world. As we continue to explore what to do next, we will update the page!

It will free us up, not tie us up in legalistic knots.
