Sustainable September

The Council of Churches is a foundation member of the WA Collaboration for Sustainability which each year conducts “Sustainable September”. Sustainable September is an annual communication campaign that demonstrates and celebrates the wide range of activities that are creating a just, sustainable and prosperous Western Australia.  Many community groups, State and Local government agencies and businesses have been pro-active in demonstrating sustainability and Sustainable September provides them with an opportunity to showcase their work in this field. See: www.sustainableseptember.net.au for more.

sustainable septemberThe Uniting Church’s Social Justice Board has prepared resources for congregations to use during Sustainable September. This year, both bible studies and worship resources have been made available.

We commend both of these resources to you. You can find these resources on UCA’s Green Church website – green.wa.uca.org.au (they’re under the Worship Resources tab).
