Ordinary Christians, Extraordinary Times
We are responsible for our impact on God’s creation as a whole. Green Christian helps members to understand and relate these responsibilities to their faith. Members can then encourage others in their local church to think seriously about these issues. Green Christian was formed in 1981, and formally constituted in 1982 and supports Christians from all backgrounds and traditions.

At present the vast majority of the work in Green Christian is carried out unpaid. Green Christian has 11 trustees who meet at least three times a year, and have three telephone conference calls between meetings. Our AGM is usually in November. Some members help on a regular basis with membership, distribution of resources, proof reading, website and prayer diary. Other members contribute by helping produce material for topic leaflets; by organising events; by taking Green Christian display posters and leaflets to local events and national events such as Greenbelt; and in many other ways. We always welcome offers of help.
Since our visioning weekend in February 2017 and officially since January 2018, the structure of Green Christian has changed and is being developed by five different groups: The Formation/Way of Life Group, the Participation Group, the Administrative Group, the Media Groupand the Joy in Enough Co-ordination Group. These are very much at the embryo stage and we hope will birth Green Christian into a new and more relevant stage.
