Climate Justice

Our world’s climate is changing. And this is affecting people across the globe.

Research shows that up to 132 million people will be pushed into extreme poverty by climate change by 2030*

We believe in a God who cares for and loves every human being on the planet. And as Christians we can join in fighting for change, by prayer and with action.
