The Uniting Church in NSW has recently begun to develop a series of web resources for congregations and other church groups that want to look at ways of being environmentally friendly.A church going ‘green’ contains a range of information for those who want to express their faith in this way.
The site page contains links to information for congregations interested in using ‘green’ power, including the story of Maroubra Junction congregation which has taken very seriously its responsibility to decrease the size of its ecological footprint. Ms Lauren Fee, a member of Maroubra Junction and mission worker for Christian Students Uniting at the University of Sydney, says: “If every church in the New South Wales Synod switched to Green Power it would cut greenhouse gasses by 4,500 tons – the equivalent of taking 1,000 cars off the road for a year.”
The site also has a hymn (new words set to a familiar tune), a book review, a movie review and a number of other resources that can be used by the environmentally conscious. Why not visit and browse?
