Caring for Creation

The Anglican Church Freiburg has a heart for the care of God’s creation.

Some of our members have lived eco-friendly for decades and their lifestyle, gentle nudging and wise guidance is inspiring more and more of us to follow along on this journey. We recongnise that our daily habits and decisions are as much expression of our love for God, the Creator, as our worship within a church building.

You made the heavens,
even the highest heavens, and all their starry host,
the earth and all that is on it,
the seas and all that is in them.
You give life to everything,
and the multitudes of heaven worship you.”

Nehemiah 9:6

General Synod sets 2030 Net Zero carbon target

Members voted for all parts of the Church of England to take action and ramp-up efforts to reduce emissions, and called for urgent steps to examine requirements to reach the new target, and draw up an action plan.
