Caring about our world
Public Policy Group
London Churches Environmental Network (LCEN)
The London Churches Environmental Network was launched in May 2007 to continue the work of LondonSCARE. SCARE was originally set up to promote awareness in the Diocese of Southwark of our Christian responsibility to care for the environment. It was later joined by representatives of London Diocese to become LondonSCARE with the two dioceses working together to energise the Church into taking its environmental responsibilities seriously.
The purpose of the network will be to ensure that the technical knowledge and environmental expertise of many of London’s church members is made readily available to all churches across London and widen its ecumenical value.
Its remit will be to hold occasional seminars and lectures and other events on environmental issues, and to act as a ginger group to keep before the London churches our Christian responsibility to honour the fact that “the earth is the Lord’s”, to live accordingly and to accept that part of the mission of the church is caring for the earth’s resources and ensuring that they become shared more equally among all peoples in justice and peace.

LondonSCARE / LCEN have commissioned a series of studies by Professor Sam Berry on God’s word in Creation and Redemption.
Entitled ‘Whose World’ the studies have two aims:
- To show that creation care is an integral part of the Christian faith. It is not merely an option for a minority
- To demonstrate that we have a part to play, however implausible this may seem in view of the scale of the problems.
