Climate Pastoral Care Conference
Christian training in Care, Communication & Action
Bushfires, smoke, drought, flooding, hailstorms and more! Australia has really been feeling the impacts of climate change this year, and climate anxiety and grief seem to be at their highest level ever in our communities. How can we as churches, Christian leaders and pastoral practitioners, offer people the pastoral care and support they need at this time - both within our churches and in the wider community?
How can we empower our communities to take action on climate and advocate to government to increase their sense of power and agency, and decrease their climate anxiety? How can we be inspired by our faith to campaign for a safe climate future for all?
Come along to discuss, contribute and learn together. Be equipped with skills in best practice climate pastoral care, climate communication, and church climate action and advocacy by leading experts in each of these fields.
This is a must-attend event for anyone in the church who cares about God's creation, loving their neighbours, climate and pastoral care.
