Discover is the name we use for our study and fellowship groups, as we seek God and grow in our faith journey, together

Caring for Creation

A Christian response to the environmental crisis

We live in a time of fear about the Earth's future. Respected scientists and economists tell us that we are overusing the earth’s resources, and in our failure to look after the planet we are unleashing forces beyond our control. Where should Christians stand on this? Can we continue to watch it going on or should we be doing whatever we can to delay these processes? Our faith proclaims hope for the future offered through Christ's death and resurrection. Where do we find hope for our planet?

This Autumn the Ministry Team will be running a course for our Discover groups. The course has been designed to help us to understand some of the issues, and to enable us to discuss what our response should be as people of faith, who believe that God created (and is still creating) all things – visible and invisible.
