Love Creation

Love Creation is the Two Saint James’ response to the biblical mandate that we are to care for God’s world (Genesis 2:15).

Our mission is to inspire and equip the Two Saint James, both as a church and as individuals, to work out what it means to care for God’s creation in our own lives.  Love Creation calls on each and every member of theTwo Saint James to be involved with this.

Love Creation at St James

One of our core missions at the Two Saint James is the Christian conservation charity, A Rocha, and we have gained their prestigious Eco-Congregation Award. Eco-Congregation (now Eco Church) is an award scheme set up by A Rocha to recognise churches who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth. Work by the Two Saint James that makes us an Eco-Congregation runs from conducting an energy audit of our church buildings, to issuing ideas and tips for people to reduce their personal impact on the environment; from advising on how to make some of our events more environmentally friendly, to running Fairtrade stalls; from helping the children of Promiseland to create a Christmas tree from recycled materials, to conducting a survey of birds and butterflies in our church grounds – and lots in-between!

To be an Eco Church we must continue to weave creation care into all aspects of church life: into our worship and teaching, into how we look after our buildings and land, into how we engage with our local community and in global campaigns, and into the personal lifestyles of our congregation.
