CHRISTIAN ECOLOGY LINK (CEL)
BAPTIST CONTACT SCHEME
If you are a Baptist and a member of CEL and would like to be in contact with other Baptist members of CEL please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
In March 2002 we sent round a copy of the Baptist Union Vision Statement on the environment.
Networking - Drawing together Baptist congregations involved in environmental concerns (and particularly Eco-Congregation) in order to facilitate and encourage their work".
The CEL Baptist Newsletter commented
Recently we asked Graham Sparkes about environmental activity at the new regional level. His reply was that regions 'do not have people with designated responsibility for environmental issues'. He added that 'this may emerge sometime in the future.
It is understandable that it takes time to get a new structure going but it is to be hoped that someone in the regions is concerned about such matters. If any readers can enlighten us we should be glad to hear of it particularly in connection with Local Agenda 21"
The environment responsibilities in the Union leadership are allotted as follows :
Mission Adviser: Graham Sparkes (a staff member at Didcot)
Dr John Biggs (Environment; Baptist representative on the CTBI Environmental Issues Network) Prof Graham Ashworth (Sustainable Development) (Both are former BU Presidents)
Below are listed some Baptist Churches where action has been taken to care for God's Creation. (Do email us if you know of web links to other churches where there is activity to look after the environment)
