Christian Climate Action have a book out on the 20th Feb called Time to Act. We have put our blood, sweat and tears into this book because we hope and pray that it will awaken the Church and lead to the Christian climate movement the world so dearly needs right now.
We believe that the Church can make a real difference in this climate crisis and 2020 is such an important year. This book explains why taking action is a fundamental to our Christian faith, outlines principles of change and works to inspire, equip and nourish.
If something inside you weeps when you see the horrors of wildfires in Australia, droughts in Africa, floods in Asia – that might just be God letting you know that you have agency and responsibly to do something courageous today.
We hope that Time to Act will be the first steps of this journey. Please buy for yourself and anyone you wish to travel with on this journey – your small group, your Church, your friends.

“In a remarkably short space of time, Extinction Rebellion have fundamentally altered the public discourse on climate change” – Tank Magazine
“Christians are called by God to show to the world what the divine image looks like — the image of a divine creator who brought the world to birth, called it good, and summoned human beings to reflect this divine care and delight through their own work in the world, animated by the gift of Christ’s Spirit. This timely, moving and highly motivating book will help Christians of all ages to respond faithfully to that summons and grow more fully into the joyful responsibility we are made for.” – Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge
“You’d think that those who commune daily with the Creator of the universe would be most aghast by the devastation of the creation, but that hasn’t always been the case. Sometimes Christians have invalidated environmental activism because our theology has been exclusively concerned with going to heaven rather than restoring the earth. Here is some really good news. This is a landmark book in the movement of Christians who care deeply about the earth. It is nothing short of an invitation to join the holy uprising of people sweeping the globe who will not be silent in the face of the destruction of God’s earth.” – Shane Claiborne, author, activist and leader of Red Letter Christians
“The climate crisis is the biggest issue facing humanity today and it is unjust that those least responsible for causing it are facing its full effects. The scale of the emergency facing our world demands a just response from every one of us. I am delighted to see this important coming together of people of faith passionate about engaging their heads, hearts and hands in meeting this crisis. It is only together that we can make a difference.” – Amanda Khozi Mukwashi, CEO of Christian Aid
