Press Release:
15 Feb 2010


Reverend Sam Norton, guest speaker at Christian Ecology Link's February conference said:-

"Part of the job of a priest is to nurture commitment in the people, midwiving God's solutions."


" Transition issues are to this generation what slavery was for William Wilberforce, it is how we are being called to love our neighbour."


Christian Ecology Link have launched a support network for "Churches in Transition", part of the Transition Towns movement, and held a major national conference on the transition to low carbon lives.

At their bi-annual gathering in Scarborough this weekend, 50 participants from across the Christian spectrum came together to explore the implications of climate change and 'peak oil'.

Churches in Transition (CiT) is a broad interdenominational alliance of people who hear the call to cut carbon emissions and prepare for increasing scarcity of oil. It was launched at the parish church at Ottery St Mary, a Transition Town, in November.

Christian Ecology Link are encouraging individuals and their churches to start an "ecocell" study course in lifestyle change, and take part in online conversations and a collective spiritual discipline for Lent.

Led by Sam Norton, the Rector of St Peter and St Paul in Mersea, Essex, the Scarborough conference explored the spiritual roots of sustainable Christian living.  The evening entertainment included showing the films "In Transition" and "Six Degrees"; and holding a Low Carbon ceilidh complete with bagpipes.

More details of the CEL conference


Chris Walton, editor of Green Christian magazine :-
"One of those conferences where from keynote speaker to informed
groups and worship work together in a way so that inspiration for a
transition way of life points clearly to action. More will follow as a
result of this."

Feedback from conference attendees

"Uplifting and encouraging."

"Challenging, with fellowship."

"Inspiring. Very successful in all sorts of ways"

"Nice to know you are not alone, that you are in the same boat, the
same ark, facing the same challenges."

"Very refreshing."
