New Deanery Briefing:
The climate and biodiversity crises facing the planet
with Rt Revd Graham Usher : Bishop of Norwich
7:30pm Wednesday 19 January 2022
THIS IS PART OF A SERIES OF ON-LINE BRIEFINGS FROM THE NATIONAL DEANERIES NETWORK.
Whether city, urban or rural the care of creation is at the heart of the Anglican Communion’s marks of mission. Responding to the climate and biodiversity crises that the planet faces is not a luxury in the ministry of the Church but an urgent imperative for our mission.
The challenge is for churches, schools, deaneries and dioceses to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2030. It’s not just about numbers and targets.
- How do we respond to the challenge?
- As a Church and as part of the global community what practical steps can we make to influence change?
- How can we make a difference?
In this Deanery Briefing Bishop Graham will outline the Church of England’s Environment Programme and the tools and resources available to equip churches, schools, and dioceses to rise to the challenge of reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.Booking and More Details
The National Deaneries Network is committed to the support and development of deaneries as units for mission and ministry. It was formerly known as the Church House Deaneries Group and the steering group continues to meet in Church House Westminster.
The Network organises a conference every two years which is particularly valued by Lay Chairs and Area Deans as a space for mutual support, networking and shared learning.
