Join Green Christian
We believe the Gospel is for all Creation. Inspired by our faith, we work to care for creation through prayer, living simply, public witness, campaigning and mutual encouragement. Your gift will help churches and individual Christians to understand and act on our responsibilities to God’s earth.
By becoming a member you will be supporting our work, receiving publications which you can use in your church, and have the opportunity to share ideas in “CELINK” Green Christian Members’ Email discussion group. Scroll down to ‘What you will get as a member’, for more details.
Please email us to let us know if you would prefer to receive your publications by email.
To join by setting up a direct debit online, click the “Donate” button below and select “I’d like to give regularly“.

- Individual: for just £2 a month or more. Quite a few of our members choose to give more than this because they want to support our work.
- Joint or family members: please email us with any additional names.
- Corporate or church members: please email us with further information about yourself. We would appreciate at least £5 a month.
- Outside the UK: £2 a month or more gives digital membership; £5 a month or more includes posted publications.

Who we are and what we do
We are a community of ordinary Christians from all backgrounds and traditions who seek to:
- let loose hope in this damaged, exploited and unjust world
- pioneer practical discipleship in shared prayer, struggle and action
- equip prophetic witness through our campaigns and resources
- empower agents of change in churches and the green movement
We walk alongside those of faith and no faith and we invite you to join us
- We organise eventsacross the UK where you can learn, reflect, share stories, pray and encourage one another.
- We publish resources for you to share with others: our website, magazine, leaflets, Prayer Guide, e-newsletter, posters. Members can belong to a closed email discussion group for sharing stories and ideas and encouraging each other.
- We join with others to walk this road together by providing guest speakers, facilitating local groups and the Green Christian Way of Life community.
- We find Joy in Enough and promote a positive alternative to our economic situation. You can find out more at www.joyinenough.org
