Event description
SAYING YES TO LIFE - a Day Conference for church members in the Diocese of York on our Care for the Environment

About this event

This is a day of inspiration and encouragement through talks and workshops on the theme of building our awareness and care of the environment. Our keynote speaker will be Dr Ruth Valerio, who is an Environmentalist and theologian, social activist and author. She is the Director of Global Advocacy and Influencing at Tearfund, based in the UK. She was previously Churches and Theology Director at A Rocha UK, during which time she launched the Eco Church scheme. Ruth writes: "I have a particular interest in environmental issues and long to see the culture of the Church change so that caring for God’s earth becomes an integral part of church life". We will also be joined by Jo Chamberlain, who is the National Environment Officer for the Church of England, who will talk about resources for churches and individuals for taking action on the environment.

We are planning that this event will take place on this day, whether by meeting together at the venue with any necessary mitigations in place, or if this proves impractical through restrictions, online through Zoom. If the latter, we will be in touch to inform you.
