We seek to live lightly on the earth, acting respectfully towards the fragile planet which is our home.
Our Climate Pledge
As a church we are committed to the care of God’s good creation.
This pledge was made by members of the church, and others, at our Climate Sunday service in May 2021:
Lord of life and giver of hope,
we pledge ourselves to care for creation,
to live sustainably,
to work to reduce our dependence on carbon-based fuels,
to explore the possibilities of renewable energy,
and to value the rich diversity of life.
May your wisdom guide us,
that life in all its forms may flourish,
and may be faithful in voicing creation’s praise.
Renewable energy project
We are committed to the target set by the church nationally, of becoming carbon-neutral by 2030. As members of the climate-focused group Towards Carbon Neutral Churches in Craven, we are participating in a government-funded study to assess the carbon footprint of our churches and their potential for generating renewable energy.
