The Canterbury Diocesan Environment and Climate Emergency motion commits us to learning the facts and speaking the truth about our environment, the climate emergency and the action we can take to care for creation. At a Benefice and Parish level, we all have a part to play in having open and honest conversations on ‘Eco’ matters, and in playing our part in caring for God’s creation. There are many ways of doing this, most of which are covered by the various organisations in the links below.

Eco Church                                       

The vision of Eco Church is for churches of all denominations to care for creation as an integral part of loving their neighbours and following God faithfully. Several of our churches have registered with Eco Church and are working towards achieving Bronze Award status.

Caring for God’s Acre  

This charity works nationally to support groups and individuals in caring for and investigating burial grounds with the aim of keeping them beautiful, accessible and connected to their communities.


Fairtrade works with farmers and workers in more than 1,900 producer organisations, across 70 countries, so they can improve their living standards, invest in their communities and businesses, and protect our shared environment. They achieve this working with farmers and workers, supply chain partners, brands, retailers, shoppers, schools, government in order to gain fair prices and uphold fair production standards and practices. Fair prices provide an immediate lifeline for farmers and workers struggling with low incomes and disadvantaged by global trade.
