Introducing the Social Action and Environment sections

Caring for creation

The Church of England's national environmental programme exists to enable the whole Church to address - in faith, practice and mission - the issue of climate change and care of creation.

There is a wealth of information on the Church of England's website to help you and your church address these areas which can be accessed here.

You can also explore this section of the Diocese website for some specific support  to help churches do this.

Social Action and the Built and Natural Environment

The Diocese of Ely's Board for Social Responsibility believes that it is imperative for churches to engage with issues of social justice and aim to respond to current needs within our culture and society,

Below you will find information to enable and train christians to engage with these matters with a sense of priority, concern, prayerfulness and practical application to see things change.

Jes Salt is the Social Justice Coordinator and has a specific focus on Foodbanks, and Credit Unions.
