Concern for our environment and the call to engagement in justice issues lies close to the heart of our community. We believe that the ‘good news’ is a call to ‘act justly, love mercy and walk humbly’, and that has practical implications. We are prepared to challenge on another in the way we use our world’s resources, and move as a community toward having more environmentally appropriate facilities. We have a ‘green group’ that meets to discuss environmental issues and educate others, including our young people. In doing this we see ourselves as part of a wider network of organisations that are calling for care of our world. We are prepared to question and explore issues of poverty and global injustice, and seek ways to personally engage in the issue where our conscience challenges us through letter writing, petition and protest. We seek to support local and overseas missions that educate and offer to empower people to independence.
