A Christian conservation charity has a new scheme to build on the good things coming out of lockdown, and look ahead to a new era.

A Rocha's Jennifer Jobbins explains:

"Anyone who has stopped to admire the spring blossom, or enjoyed the first signs of summer fast approaching, will understand how important nature has been during lockdown for our happiness and health. Christian conservation charity A Rocha UK is committed to mobilising Christians and churches in the UK to care for the environment and has been offering ways to help people connect and reconnect with nature during this lockdown period.

"With church members currently worshipping at home, we’d really encourage everyone looking for ways to continue celebrating and protecting God’s creation to become part of the Wild Christian scheme, a community of families and individuals exploring the connections between our Christian faith, the natural environment, and how we live.

"You can sign up to receive Wild Christian’s free monthly email, which includes a biblical reflection and ideas on how to enjoy, nurture and defend nature.

"Our charity, working for the protection and restoration of the natural world, includes the Eco Church programme. Eco Church is a fast growing community of churches and Christians responding to the environment crisis together, and your church may already be part of this community.

"The Diocese of Salisbury became the first Diocese in the Church of England to achieve Eco Diocese status under this programme in November 2018, showing that the care for God’s creation is at the heart of its ministry and mission. Why not journey alongside other nature-loving, climate-caring Christians to support and inspire each other and take effective action together?"
