We believe that God, as the Creator of the universe, calls humanity into a relationship of mutuality and interdependence with the Creation. God’s will for the Earth is renewal and reconciliation, not destruction by human beings.
We are particularly concerned about human-induced climate change. Climate change is a serious threat to the integrity of life on Earth, now and for future generations. We are especially engaged in supporting our vulnerable neighbours in the Pacific.
Urgent action to secure a safe climate for all is essential.
The Synod has established five Task Groups to support its Climate Action Strategy. Through these Task Group church members and Uniting staff can take action for a safe climate, either by joining the groups, using their resources, or attending their events.
The Task Groups are supported by our Uniting Earth Advocates, who are part of the Uniting Advocacy Team.
Here are some printable resources to help you and your congregation get involved in the Climate Action Strategy, and to explain to others why Climate Action is a core part of Christian discipleship.
