What's happening next

A Green Church Initiative in Lewes?

An Open Meeting was held on Tuesday 29 June led by the Revd Jeff Lake, which considered:

·         Why should local congregations be engaged with environmental issues?

·         How might this initiative create an opportunity for mission?

·         How could Churches Together promote existing activities and encourage links between church and community projects?

In his talk, Jeff addressed these and other questions, sharing his particular interests in the therapeutic value of the outdoors, pilgrimage and Franciscan spirituality. He believes that the pandemic has raised awareness and concern about the destructive exploitation of nature and prompted many to reassess life’s priorities.

He  shared his experience of Green Church initiatives elsewhere and made some practical suggestions for getting started in our lovely town and the surrounding area.

Jeff is an Associate Priest at St Bride’s, Fleet Street, London with permission to officiate in the Diocese of Chichester. He is also Deputy Director of Public Health at Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea. His wife works at the University of Brighton and before lockdown they lived their lives between London and Lewes.  Since March 2020 Jeff has been in Lewes with just the occasional visit to London.
