Green Church Project
The Iglesia Verde (Green Church) Project is the first project to be implemented by our Creation Care Programme. The project aims to sensitize and train leaders and members of churches and Christian institutions in the biblical principle of Creation Care. In addition, the project will implement environmental mini-projects that will help address environmental issues in the communities where the churches and Christian institutions are established. The Iglesia Verde Project commenced as a pilot project in Chiclayo from July 2021 to December 2022. During this time, the project implemented three mini-projects, two vegetable gardens, and one small recycling project. The project is expanding this successful experience to Lima and throughout Peru with the collaboration of Presbyterian churches and Youth Groups. The project will realise its objectives by carrying out the following activities:
- Capacity Building: virtual courses, talks, and seminars to train pastors and leaders in the principle of Stewardship of Creation
- Environmental Education: development of mini-projects in churches or Christian communities.
- Communication: disseminate the project’s achievements through its social networks.
