Ordinary Christians, Extraordinary Times
We are responsible for our impact on God’s creation as a whole. Green Christian helps members to understand and relate these responsibilities to their faith. Members can then encourage others in their local church to think seriously about these issues. Green Christian was formed in 1981, and formally constituted in 1982 and supports Christians from all backgrounds and traditions.

At present the vast majority of the work in Green Christian is carried out unpaid. Green Christian has a Steering Committee of 12 people which meets at least three times a year, and has three telephone conference calls between meetings. Our AGM is usually in November. Some members help on a regular basis with membership, distribution of resources, proof reading, website and prayer diary. Other members contribute by helping produce material for topic leaflets; by organising events; by taking Green Christian display posters and leaflets to local events and national events such as Greenbelt; and in many other ways. We always welcome offers of help.
Much of Green Christian’s administrative work is divided between two teams:
Creative: – i.e Design, media, (Chair Paul Bodenham)
exhibitions, leaflets, Green Christian, Storm of Hope, web design.
Community – i.e. Membership database, accounts (Chair Barbara Echlin)
Local Groups, links with other organisations.
