A challenge for Moncreiff
Let’s Change the Climate!
Moncreiff is going to be taking part in a week-long challenge from Tearfund. And it’s all about bringing the church together to tackle the climate crisis.
Across the world, millions of families have lifted themselves out of poverty. But today, because of climate change, they are being pushed back. That is not God’s plan for creation.
What is God’s plan? It’s us – the church. Throughout the week of the challenge, we’ll be finding out more about what we can all do to make a difference, through reflections, prayer and activities that we can all take part in.
During the week of 21st to 26th March we will be sending out a daily Facebook posts with a short video to inspire us with stories about how communities around the world are tackling the climate emergency together. You can also access the videos below.
After watching the video, there will be prompts to reflect, pray and do. You can do these as an individual, with your family, or with your small group.
Each day will focus on a different theme: travel, water, energy, food, waste, and prayer; and will include a climate-related action you can take. Two options are available: one easier and one more challenging! They may need some forward thinking, so we suggest you take a look in advance.
By reflecting, we’ll be changing our hearts and minds. By praying, we’ll be joining together with the will of God. And by taking action, we’ll be changing our daily habits to be more sustainable.
At the end of the week, during our Sunday Service, you will have an opportunity to share how you got on with the challenges, what the week felt like and hear about further steps we can take as a church.
To get you thinking about the issues around the climate crisis, watch the videos below:
Let’s all join together in the last full week of our Energy Efficiency Project to think and a bit more about what we can do to help to save our precious planet now and in the future.
