Climate Change

The Yorkshire West Methodist District recognises a Climate Emergency, which requires urgent action politically, corporately and personally. The resources on this page are to help you, your church and circuit respond to this emergency and take action.

We believe that our role as stewards of God’s creation goes beyond the walls of our church and extends to the world we all share. With a deep sense of responsibility, we are actively engaging in efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, promote sustainable practices, and raise awareness about the urgent need for climate action.

Join us on this journey as we seek to protect and preserve the precious gift of our planet for future generations, guided by the principles of faith, love, and hope.

You can read news stories about the different ways our churches and circuits are taking climate action here.
