Churches, communities, and inspiring individuals across the UK are walking the talk about creation care. In our latest video series, we’re sharing the stories of five such change-makers about their creation care journeys.
We spoke to Rachel Parrott from New Life Baptist Church in Northallerton. Rachel is the chair of One Northallerton One Planet, an eco-group that brings together churches from across the community. Rachel also shares how her church journeyed towards declaring a climate emergency and how they are engaging with their local MP, Rishi Sunak.
