Forests

Forest Advocacy Ministry

A desperate need, and an exciting opportunity, to protect God’s good Creation

Vision for the project

  • Work with others to achieve a rapid end to industrial native forest logging in NSW.
  • Increase the involvement of Christians in efforts for forest protection.
  • Acknowledge, encourage and support spiritual connection with the earth/Earth.

Listen to the voice of Creation

As the Season of Creation for 2022 draws to a close we have the opportunity to actively respond to this time and take action to protect God’s precious forests.
