Faith in Action: Environment

The Anglican EcoCare Commission strives to sustain the earth through initiatives that promote environmental responsibility in a range of diverse settings – from worshipping, to school and local communities.

They do this through education, advocacy and expressions of eco-theology.

We are proud to belong to a diocese that considers the environment as something integral to the life and mission of the Church, as well as central to our spirituality. We act in accordance with the Anglican EcoCare Statute (2006).

Our current policy priorities are:

  • sustainability
  • energy
  • water and
  • pollution.

We hold membership with the Ecumenical Social Justice Roundtable, the Council of Churches WA, and the WA Civil Society Climate Roundtable.

Our commissioners are committed Anglicans, lay and ordained who promote the responsible stewardship of our creation through theological action and reflection.
