We are living in times when there are significant challenges that society needs to negotiate in terms of caring for natural resources.  Our LIFE Vision seeks engagement to live out Christ’s love and hope by: “Being advocates for human flourishing, through initiatives which combat injustice, environmental destruction, exclusion and isolation.”

We are committed to caring for the environment and supporting the work of local and national environmental organisations, and working in partnership with other organisations where our values and priorities coincide.

The Bishop of Tewkesbury, the Rt Revd Robert Springett has given a helpful talk on this topic, as well as personally setting a good example with work in the Cotswolds.
