Cafe Church considers the environment

This week’s Cafe Church Service marked Christian Aid week by reflecting with them on the environment, in particular the Christian response to climate change. We signed an open letter to HSBC which is one of the few banks that is still investing in the exploitation of coal. We discussed the impact of the climate on local farming communities. A number of us also went to hear Bishop James Jones speak about Jesus and the Earth at St Marys Thirsk this week. We hope to form a group of local Christians who are concerned with the environment.
