Stewarding our precious Earth

We have recently started this YouTube channel, associated to both the Romsey Church and Winchester, Eastleigh and Romsey Circuit, to inform people about how to express their creation care. Particular topics are climate emergency, biodiversity collapse, a sustainable world and social justice. It reflects the approaches of A Rocha’s Wild Christian and Eco Church, and also of Climate Stewards.

We hope that you find this a useful resource. It would be great if you could help with contributions on appropriate topics. Suggestions of topics, and good quality photos and video clips are welcome. I’m happy to try to blend them. The aim is to offer videos of 5-10 minutes that a wide spectrum of people can find of interest and value.

COP26 - get creative!

The 'Art for the Planet' project aims to put enormous banners on the Mound in Edinburgh during COP26 to catch the attention of world leaders in Scotland for the conference. Do we have some creative types in the District? It would be lovely to send a little bit of our District to COP26.  See flyer below for full brief
