The Anglican EcoCare Commission is the environmental advocacy and education body for the Diocese of Perth, created to pursue the Fifth Mark of Mission, “to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and to sustain and renew the life of the earth”.

Anglican EcoCare was established as a Standing Commission of the Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Perth in 2006, and was founded on the urging of Perth Anglicans.

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. We 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 and we are a founding member of the WA branch of the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change.

Our Commissioners are committed Anglicans, lay and ordained who promote the responsible stewardship of our creation through theological action and reflection. Our Chair The Reverend Patrick King, who is supported by:

  • Dr Susan Taylor
  • Mr Gerard Siero
  • Mr Stuart Guthrie
  • Ms Anielka Briggs
  • Mr Jonathan Holgate
  • The Reverend Patrick King.

Mr Peregrin Campbell-Osgood is our part-time Project Officer.
