Invitation to Work Together in Response to Climate Crisis (Halifax Regional Municipality)
Calling all United Church members or groups who are passionate about the climate crisis! We, the members of the Earth Spirit Action Team of St. Matthew’s United Church are reaching out to others who would like to work with us to find ways to respond to the crisis that we are facing. Our team has been working in our congregation for over 2 years to provide information and possible actions that we as Christian people can take. We would like to network with other groups, teams or individuals in communities of faith in the HRM to explore how we can work together to build a stronger voice, to create ideas for action, and to provide support for one another on behalf of God’s creation. We hope you will join us.
