Creation Care

As Christians, we believe that the earth belongs to God; that all things have been created and will be redeemed in Christ; and that we have been entrusted with the care of the earth.

The Bishop’s Committee on Creation Care provides support to individual Anglicans, parishes, and the Diocese as a whole, in order to make creation care an integral part of our worship, life and witness. To learn more, contact the co-chairs, Dr. Sylvia Keesmaat and Dr. Grant Jahnke, at creation.care@toronto.anglican.ca.

Connecting with others

We’re connected to the Creation Matters working group of the Anglican Church of Canada, and through it to the global Anglican Environmental Communion Network.

We commend these other Canadian faith-based organizations working on environmental justice and stewardship:

  • Citizens for Public Justice: a Christian voice for social and environmental justice in Canadian public policy
  • Faith and the Common Good: an interfaith organization helping faith communities with practical greening through their Greening Sacred Spaces program
  • KAIROS: a coalition of Canadian churches working together for justice and peace
  • A Rocha Canada: a Christian environmental stewardship organization working in conservation, environmental education and sustainable agriculture
