On the Epiphany, we remember the visit of the Magi to Jesus as a child. Known for their wisdom, they followed the star, in the hope that it would lead them to Jesus to bring him gifts and to worship him.
We, the undersigned, wish for our investments to be made as a sign of hope, contributing to the flourishing of God’s creation, both now and for generations to come.
We support the campaign for fossil free Churches and, conscious of the impact of climate change on our sisters and brothers around the world – especially those living in poverty, we recognise the urgency of the need to shift from fossil fuels to a brighter, cleaner future.
The churches of the Parish of Alston Moor therefore commit to divest any existing fossil fuel investments within the next five years and pledge not to invest in fossil fuels in the future.
