EARTH & FAITH is a new ecumenical project for Churches Together in Faringdon, launching in May 2014.
EARTH & FAITH will be a focus group among the Faringdon churches, to help us develop our understanding and care of the environment.
As a pilot project, we are planning one whole year of monthly events – plenty of opportunities to:
- celebrate the gifts of God in Creation
- discover the interdependence of the natural world, including ourselves
- learn about our human impact on ecological systems
- resist apathy and despondency about ecological problems
- find grounds for living in hope for the future of the Earth.
There are of course many interest groups in the neighbourhood that care about the environment, and some church members belong to these already. Our new group will not try to reinvent the wheel, but we do hope to be a channel of information and ideas from other sources to the churches, and a witness to our neighbours of the churches’ concern for these issues.
A small steering committee meets for the first time in April to begin to plan the programme. First events in early summer.
