Hope in our Hands seeks to be a friendly catalyst in our church bringing climate change to wider awareness so that it comes to bear on every aspect and decision of our church life. We want to bring challenge both to our church structures and systems as well as to the way we live as individuals. We particularly want to point to hope and to the ways we can flourish even in the face of the hard planetary limits that we are now bumping up against.
In January 2019 Lancaster City Council used a declaration of a climate emergency as tool to set the city on a different path. Hope in Our Hands started out with concerned members of our congregation getting together to start doing something in our church and community life. By working together and sharing ideas there is much we can do. Others in the church who see the potential of hope in our hands are welcome to join our group or offer ideas.
Hope in Our Hands meets monthly and we are steadily making more visible different dimensions of the challenge we face. We are keen that all in the congregation start talking more about the issues. We will continue to share ideas and inform of initiatives which might encourage us to take further steps in reducing our negative impacts on the planet and in preparing for the shocks that are likely to come.
