Anglican Communion Environmental Network

A Network for those who care for God’s creation

Anglicans and Episcopalians worldwide have long been concerned with environmental issues. From extreme weather to food shortages all of us are affected. Guided by the fifth Mark of Mission members of the Anglican Communion Environment Network strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the earth.

Carbon Fast for Lent 2016

Carbon Fast 2016small

During Lent we remember the 40 days that Jesus spent in the wilderness facing challenge and temptation. It is an important time to reflect on God’s purpose for our lives. For Lent this year the Anglican Communion Environmental Network challenges us to take on a Carbon Fast  and to reduce actions that damage God’s creation.
