Being involved in Christian Climate Action doesn’t have to mean getting arrested or even doing nonviolent direct action. For those who care about the wellbeing of others, why not get involved with the Pastoral Working Group?
What is the pastoral working group?
We aim to:
- Provide a listening ear for those within Christian Climate Action who may be in need of pastoral support, for example in relation to climate grief or anxiety, burn-out or feeling isolated.
- Develop artistic and creative expression, liturgy and prayers with a pastoral focus.
- Offer some arrestee support, mainly in the form of Post Arrest Liaison (PAL) – 1-1 emotional support for arrestees mainly over the phone. We appreciate that many in CCA will continue to use their local Extinction Rebellion support groups for this purpose, but we hope to build skills within CCA to provide support to those not in that position, and to provide support for CCA only actions.
The coordinators of the pastoral working group are the wonderful David and Gaynor. Anyone curious or interested in joining the pastoral team, please do get in touch on email@example.com. David and Gaynor will be able to welcome you to the group and let you know of any training for the role which you might desire.
What if I need pastoral support myself?
If you need us, for prayer, or as a listening ear, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
