Dig into Nature

Just Love: Another World is Possible Nov 23

Nature is in freefall1. In the UK, 1,500 species are faced with extinction. This degradation of the environment poses real threats to wildlife, human life, and sustainability.

Yet hope is not lost. Across the UK, there are churches, Christian land owners, individuals and families praying, building bug hotels in their back gardens, identifying species, doing church outside, putting solar panels on their church roofs, and demanding better for our natural world from the UK government – there are Wild Christians everywhere.

This is your invitation

We know that Just Love is as acutely aware of the biblical mandate to care for God’s earth and yet we can’t all be trained nature conservationists by trade. At A Rocha UK, we exist to do that very specific work of nature conservation, as well as to act as a catalyst that sparks and equips UK churches and Christians to take informed action where they are.

This is your invitation to get involved, and invest your time, finances and talent in nature and become a Wild Christian

Join Wild Christian
Be a part of our community of Christians working towards a wilder future

Receive practical tips on taking action for nature in your home and your local community as well as how to campaign for nature. Hear first about our events that take an in depth look at nature-related campaigns and explore topics such as responding with resilience to the climate crisis.

Write to your MP
Ask them to put nature at the heart of the next parliament for the sake of people and wildlife.

We need our politicians to act now to live up to their commitment to protect and restore nature. The next parliament must be a turning point for nature. Write to your MP with the Nature 2030 campaign. A coalition of nature charities across the UK are writing to all MPs with five policy asks which will support nature thriving in the UK.

Invest in Nature
Join our growing group of donors who are helping fund and support our hands-on conservation work.

A Rocha is working to see 75,000 acres of land across the UK managed to restore habitats for nature and people through partnering with other Christian institutions and individuals with land. We have more demand for projects than we can support. Can you join our growing donor base to support our vision? 

We are looking for those who can give whatever they can afford, or if you would like to discuss larger donations, or how the money is spent, we would be delighted to talk more with you.

Volunteer your skills
There are many ways you can donate your time and skills to support nature with us.

Get your hands dirty

Our nature conservation volunteers range from those who have never picked up a spade or pruned a plant, to those with years of expertise and experience – everyone is welcome, of all faiths and none, and we work together in our care for creation.

Volunteer at either Wolf Fields, our West London reserve, or at Foxearth Meadows, our Suffolk reserve, for our weekly work parties to learn new skills in the fresh air and exercise as part of a friendly team.

We have Partners in Action across the UK, if you don’t live near either of reserves get in touch and we can link you up with partners across the UK.

Write and research

Do you enjoy contributing creative ideas, writing engaging articles, or researching current topics and can spare some hours on a regular or semi-regular basis?

As part of our Wild Christian programme, we prepare and send a bi-monthly email to our Wild Christian community with practical, interesting and well researched articles and ideas for enjoying, nurturing and defending nature together.

We have a small team of staff and volunteers who contribute to this and we are currently looking to grow that team.

Shape our work

At A Rocha, we want to meaningfully serve the church and Christians who are seeking to practically work to care for God’s creation.

It’s important therefore that we are hearing regularly from those we seek to serve and ensuring our communications and programmes are relevant and helpful.

Please get in touch if you would be interested in sharing your views and feedback at our regular Engagement Working Group meetings.

If any of these opportunities interest you, get in touch with wild.christian@arocha.org
