Bible and Ecology course July 2021

A Five week -session course facilitated by Rev Ruth Newton of the Diocese of Leeds on behalf of the North East Churches Environment group

How is Christianity responding to the challenge of the Climate Crisis?
What are the connections between ecological concerns and faith?
Does the Bible help or hinder us when thinking about creation-care?
Is Salvation just for humans?

These are some of the questions addressed in The Bible and Ecology Course. Using online material from the University of Exeter, you will have the chance to hear from expert theologians in this area, followed by discussion in a local group.
Taking place on Zoom Thursdays in July from 7.30 to 9pm.
