Creation Care

In Jesus, God so loved the whole world. We follow Jesus, so we love the world God loves. Concerned for the global climate emergency, drawing on diverse approaches for our diverse contexts, we commit to form and restore loving, liberating, life-giving relationships with all of Creation. 

The Episcopal Church’s Covenant for the Care of Creation is a commitment to practice loving formation, liberating advocacy and life-giving conversation as individuals, congregations, ministries and dioceses. Explore the Covenant here and sign up for the newsletter and opportunities to formally adopt the Covenant in your community.


How is climate change impacting people and places around the world, especially the most vulnerable? What is our call as Episcopalians to protect the earth, our fragile island home? This four-minute film features voices from the Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop’s Delegation to the United Nations Climate Conference COP26 in November 2021.
