Climate talks limp over the line
Our vision for a world where all people can live life in all its fullness - where relationships are restored with God, with each other and with creation itself. We are a community of people following Jesus calling us to live differently, courageously, justly, and with immense hope.
We’re people sold out for Jesus.
We’re Christians from around the world with a passion to see God’s kingdom burst out into our nations. To see an end to poverty, to halt climate change, and to break down structures of inequality in our everyday.
Our generation has an opportunity like no other. We are more connected, and better informed than ever before. We can choose to perpetuate systems that divide us and harm the planet, or we can choose to work together to break down injustice, build up a more equal society, and a more sustainable planet.
Who are Renew our World?
We’re people driven by hope; with a faith that God is on the move, renewing our world.
In our lifetime, we’ve seen the most successful anti-poverty movement in history, we’ve seen global leaders agree to act on climate change and start to end the era of fossil fuels.
And we passionately believe that right now the Church has a role to play.
We won’t stand by while our neighbours are trapped in poverty, and we won’t stay idle as creation is left untended, and inequality is left to fester. We can lead a renewal, just as our forebears did to end slavery, and fight for civil rights. We long to see God’s earth renewed.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)
Our world is at a crossroads. We can choose whether to move forward, or not.
Who are Renew Our World?
We’re a global movement of Christians – united in prayer and action – who believe that since we are truly image bearers of God, we should act like it – living out love for one another in actions and in truth.
Our movement was born out of prayer, crying out to God for change. And together, we’re part of something that’s never been done before. We’re seeing the Church across the globe mobilised and active, from Nigeria to the UK, Zambia to Australia, Netherlands to Brazil… and the momentum is building.
Who are Renew our World? We are, you and I, as we follow Jesus with our whole lives. Living simply, calling for urgent action on climate change, seeking justice, challenging inequality, and praying together for a world, and an economy, that brings restoration and renewal.
An economic systems based on Biblical principles, principles that are just and sustainable. All people can make a living and have what they need without wrecking the planet. This is what the Restorative Economy is all about – where God’s intended order is built back into our social and economic systems.
Renew our World moblises, inspires, and equips the global Church to: (1) transform our nations' policies to be more sustainable and just; (2) transform our hearts through prayer and study to be more sensitive to injustice and better equipped to respond; and (3) transform our behaviors and lifestyles to reflect our love of God's creation and our global neighbors.
