Bishop's Advisor for Climate: Revd Imogen Nay

The Revd Imogen Nay, whose substantive role is as Vicar in the Benefice of St Paul, Cambridge, has been appointed as a Bishop's Advisor for Climate. 

Imogen has been involved in local environmental action since her curacy, when, instead of asking the congregation to give up food for Lent, she encouraged people to take steps to give up actions that hurt the environment. Later, in her first incumbency, she was part of a team that pioneered Muddy Church, a place for people to gather together, outside and to connect with the space and God. 

Imogen's parish in Rugby won the prestigious A Rocha Eco Church Gold Award, a scheme for churches in England and Wales to equip your church to express your care for God’s world in your worship and teaching; in how you look after your buildings and land; in how you engage with your local community and in global campaigns, and in the personal lifestyles of your congregation.

Since then, Imogen has organised conferences on eco-theology, led green retreats and workshops, promoted the A Rocha scheme and enjoyed new forms of outdoor worship. Imogen is looking forward to the networking eco-lunches that are happening across the diocese and in collaborating with others to ensure we are able to rightly value and rejoice in God's abundant and diverse creation. 

Imogen has recently published an article on wild swimming, nature spirituality and baptism.
