Faith and the Natural Environment

Chaplaincy at Canterbury Christ Church

Follow us as we seek to engage with A Rocha UK , in partnership with Christian Aid, The Church of England, The Methodist Church, Tearfund, The United Reformed Church and All churches Trust Limited and their Eco church awards programme.

As a Christian community working in close partnership with Canterbury Christ Church Universities’ “Academy for sustainable futures” we believe it is essential that we do all we can to promote good stewardship, engage with up to date research, preach green theology and maintain our commitment to both the common Good and compassionate pedagogy

“A Rocha UK is a Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world and committed to equipping Christians and churches in the UK to care for the environment. The overall aim of the Eco Church award scheme is to celebrate the ways that church communities have been engaging with caring for the Earth as a key part of the Christian faith. The scheme encourages churches to attain and improve standards across five key areas:

  • Worship and teaching
  • Management of church buildings
  • Management of church land
  • Community and global engagement
  • Lifestyle”
