‘Deconstructed’ environment conference online this October


First published on: 17th September 2020

In March this year our planned Church Action in a Climate Emergency conference was postponed, as it fell into the beginning of lockdown. But now it’s moving online as a ‘deconstructed’ conference with sessions held throughout late October & early November. 
 
Some fantastic speakers are lined up to lead inspiring hour-long sessions on topics ranging from incorporating climate change into worship and teaching, to Christian activism and church divestment. We hope you'll leave the workshops feeling encouraged and equipped to take your church on the next steps towards a cleaner future. Download a promotional flyer for your church here.
