Local church groups and the national organisation Green Christian are getting together to run a free event aimed at providing people of faith with some resources to respond to the problems of climate change and biodiversity loss.

On 15 June 2019, Shrewsbury’s Central Baptist Churchwill host Green Christian On The Road Together in Shrewsbury, the fifth in a series of On the Road Together events run by Green Christian over the last 18 months. It is open to all who are interested in finding out more about living in harmony with God’s creation and Green Christian’s insights and activities. 

Participants will learn about the Green Christian Way of Life which combines spirituality, personal change and public witness within the encouragement of a Community. They can also find out about Green Christian’s Joy In Enough project and how economics, ecology and Christianity mix.

“There is much anxiety around the environment”, said the Rev  Richard Clarkson, Environmental Officer for the Diocese of Lichfield, “It can feel so overwhelming to try and address these problems by ourselves but if we can come together as people of faith to support one another and learn from one another then we can face the challenges with a renewed hope.”

The event on Saturday 15 June will run from 10.30am to 4:30pm. Attendance is free but booking is essential as numbers are limited.
