Welcome to the St Andrew’s Roseville Environmental Action Group.
Your first question may be, “What does this group do?’’

EAG OBJECTIVES

  • To understand the biblical basis for our environmental responsibilities for protecting God’s Creation
  • To provide environmental education, seeking to gain greater awareness of areas in which human activity is damaging the environment and practical ways in which we can take corrective action.
  • To develop community projects that address environmental issues affecting our local area, and which provide opportunities to engage with the local community.

  • How do we set about doing these things?

The second commandment requires us to care for each other-often the casualties of environmental damage are the vulnerable. Psalm 24 tells us “The Earth is the Lord’s and everything in it...’’

    We have developed resources to help Christians consider how the bible teaches us to look after the Earth:
