Who we are

Christian Climate Action is a community of Christians supporting each other to take meaningful action in the face of imminent and catastrophic anthropogenic climate change. Inspired by Jesus Christ, and social justice movements of the past, we carry out acts of non-violent direct action to urge those in power to make the change needed.

Purpose of CCA:

  • To demonstrate the urgency and scale of the climate crisis
  • To inspire Christians and the church to take meaningful action
  • To communicate and demonstrate the vital role of non-violent direct action in tackling the climate crisis.
  • To create safe spaces for people to emotionally process the effects that climate change has already caused to our planet and what it threatens to destroy if we carry on as business as usual.

The sort of thing we think:

  • We are called to be faithful, not successful.
  • However, we try to be wise with our choices and prayerfully discern the best cause of action.
  • Our actions don’t have to be perfect. As Ghandi said, they are all “experiments with truth”.
  • We are ourselves part of the problem we are fighting. As Reinhold Neibuhr stated “We must contend against evil, even though we know that we are ourselves involved in the evil against which we contend”.
  • Our faith is a participatory faith and we are all called to be part of the renewal of Gods’ creation.
  • We must always adhere to the principal of nonviolence.
  • Being faithful to God is a journey which might sometimes mean non-compliance with ruling authorities.
