Divest your church: new resource for local churches available now!
Does your church have investments in fossil fuel companies? Ever thought about moving your money somewhere that builds the world you want to live in?
A new resource produced by Operation Noah, Divest your church, explains how your local church can divest from fossil fuels and reinvest for a brighter future, as well as supporting the campaign for the national Churches to divest.
The ‘how to’ guide takes you through a step-by-step process: making a divestment commitment (which can be done by churches with investments as well as those with just a bank account); communicating your decision to national and regional church investors; switching to a 100% renewable energy provider; and reinvesting in clean alternatives.
It outlines the range of alternative investment options available, from fossil free bank accounts to investment funds and projects with a positive environmental and social impact. What’s more, your church could meet some of the Eco Church Award criteria in the process!
