"The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and all they that dwell therein."
~ Psalm 24:1
Christian environmental stewardship is a dimension of our spirituality that we explore in many ways.
As a church we:
PRAY and reflect on the duty to care for God’s Creation and protect the poor and vulnerable.
LEARN about and educate others on the causes and moral dimensions of climate change.
ASSESS how we as individuals and in our families, church, and community contribute to climate change by our energy use, consumptions, waste, etc.
ACT to change our choices and behaviours to reduce the ways we contribute to climate change.
ADVOCATE for Christian principles and priorities in climate change discussions and decisions, especially as they impact the poor and vulnerable.
Improving our Environmental Management Practices
Whitstable URC is currently raising funds to replace the lighting in the church to make the building more energy efficient. Not only would this improve the experience for everyone who uses the space, it would also help us cut our energy consumption so that we are better stewards of our world.
Are you able to contribute towards this expenditure? If so, please contact us.
3rd Saturday of the Month
We invite everyone to engage their love of nature and neighbour with their love of God. Every month, we explore idyllic gems of our local outstanding natural resources followed by lunch at a local pub. These walks are an opportunity to get to know the surrounding countryside and, at the same time, to meet other people. We look forward to seeing you!
You are also welcome to join us just for lunch!
Walks are suitable for well-behaved dogs.
Walks vary in length (usually around 3-4 miles) and terrain (from coastal trails to hills and woods), but we aim to make them fairly easy to manage, avoiding steep climbs and lots of stiles.
Details and meeting arrangements are posted in the church or can be emailed to you.
You can contact the walk leader at church or via the enquiry form.
N.B. This not a formal walking club and is not covered by insurance.
