Let's Change the Climate Challenge

One week of challenges. From ditching the car to going veggie, sustainable switches to tackle the climate crisis!

Your actions matter

At the heart of the climate crisis lies a grim injustice. The people who have done the least to cause this crisis – people living in poverty – are suffering the most.

What difference can we make? It may feel like our actions don’t add up to much. But if each one of us makes a small change, then we can make a huge difference.

‘Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?’ (Isaiah 58:6)

How the challenge works

Could you go a whole day without using electricity? a week without travelling in a car? or what if all the water you had for an entire day was just 15 litres?

The Let's Change the Climate Challenge involves taking on a new challenge every day for one week. First, watch a short film and hear stories from people around the world who are impacted by the climate crisis. You’ll then have the chance to reflect and pray before you take on the challenge for the day.
