James Buchanon of Operation Noah in their Bright Now Campaign  invites you to raise the issue of divestment in your parish council meetings/ church meeting especially during CreationTime and writes:

 

Could your local church divest this Season of Creation?

Following the Church of England’s fossil fuel divestment vote in July,Operation Noah is inviting local churches of all denominations to make divestment commitments during the Season of Creation (1 September – 4 October) and beyond.

 
For churches without existing investments in fossil fuels, this would simply involve a pledge not to make such investments in the future.
 
By making a divestment commitment, your local church can send a powerful message about the need for urgent action on climate change as well as keeping up the pressure for national Churches to divest.
 
Operation Noah’s ‘how to’ guide, Divest your churchexplains how your church can divest from fossil fuels and outlines the range of alternative investment options available.

If your church would like to join the divestment announcement at the end of the Season of Creation, please emailjames.buchanan@operationnoah.org by 12 noon on Monday 1 October. We look forward to hearing from you!

James
