Tearfund is a Christian charity that’s passionate about ending global poverty. Environmental destruction and climate change have a huge effect on communities in poorer parts of the world, so these are some of the main issues that Tearfund seeks to address. The current Director of Global Advocacy and Influencing at Tearfund is Ruth Valerio, formerly of A Rocha, and author of the excellent Say Yes to Life.
Tearfund have always produced excellent resources, and there are some very helpful ones on caring for creation that are freely available on their website. Take a look at what is available on the Tearfund website, and explore the latest material and also the archives of resources from previous projects.
There is a 9 part small group Bible study with videos from Christian climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe, the Change-makers videos of how people took action, and a climate emergency toolkit for churches. There is also the ‘Reveal’ toolkit for small group study, Bible study and action, with options to cover many issues – including creation care. There is a section on environment and climate on their separate ‘Learn’ website, with links to Bible studies as well as more in-depth resources. And there are some great videos from Tearfund staff sharing their experiences on climate change on the frontlines.
Do explore the Tearfund website to find the new resources that appear at regular intervals.
