Caring for Creation at #KandKOxford Summit

On the 15th of September between about 10:30 and 12:30 UK time, delegates from Kimberley and Kuruman Diocese and Oxford Diocese will join together to reflect on our Christian calling to care for creation.

The session will be led primarily by Canon Rachel Mash, the co-ordinator of the Anglican Communion Environmental Network, with input from people involved with environmental work in both dioceses.

Working with the Wider Community

20 May, Wesley Memorial Methodist Church, Oxford, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Our care for creation offers opportunities for us to show our love for God in how we ‘practise what we preach’ in our churches and how we engage more closely with our community. In the morning, we’ll join with local community groups to focus on work together: Who are the groups in our area? What are they doing? What would community groups like to see from the churches? What do churches have to offer?

The afternoon will be led by Jo Musker-Sherwood of Hope for the Future. Hope for the Future is doing groundbreaking work on how churches can develop constructive relationships with local councillors and MPs to have positive discussions on local and wider environmental issues.
