Johannesburg Anglicans Caring For The Environment

Johannesburg Anglicans Caring For The Environment

The Johannesburg Anglican Environmental Initiative is a formal body of the Anglican community of Johannesburg who are attempting to address the challenges being faced by this generation with regards to the environment. We believe it is God’s will that we look after this precious planet we call home. We believe that we have an ethical and moral responsibility to work towards sustainability and social justice in relation to creation.

The Johannesburg Anglican Environmental Initiative (JAEI) has been formed to 
• Create an awareness among Johannesburg Anglican Christians of environmental concerns

• Encourage parish environmental projects

• Develop the concept of the eco-congregation among parishes

• Network widely with all groups concerned with sustainable development and environmental issues

• Be a resource to the Christian community in terms of environmental issues

• Encourage environmental education

• Develop position papers on major environmental issues to serve as guidelines for theological reflection and diocesan advocacy

One thought on “About JAEI

  1. I’m a parishioner at St. Monnica’s Anglican church in Midrand. We have just stated as an Eco congregation and would like to participate in the greater JAEI. I’d like to be notified of new comments via email.
