Anglicans speak on greening, transforming faith spaces

Anglicans speak on greening, transforming faith spaces

The Joint Assembly of General Synod in 2013 agreed to create diocesan level Creation Matters task groups. Such task groups will come in line to "encourage parishes to do green audits". The purpose of such audits is to green parish buildings. Enviroaction Huron is part of that partnership. Examples of Anglican churches which are greening their buildings are St. Matthew's (Winnipeg), St. Luke's (Ottawa), and Christ Church Cathedral (Ottawa). The Very Rev. Shane Parker, dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa, recently proposed a condominium tower and townhouse building project to exceed the LEED gold environmental building standard. Randal Goodfellow chair of Creation Matters says "Don't just improve your building, use it." Anglican parishes are finding ways to do just that.
