Baptist Union Environment Network

BUEN logo

The Baptist Union Environment Network - ‘BUEN’, meaning good in Spanish aims to raise awareness and respond to the environmental crisis.  They are building a network of environmental partners across Regional Association life who can journey alongside churches to enable them to

  • recognise the goodness of God’s creation
  • share in God’s mission to care for it and respond to the climate and environmental crisis in practical ways
  • work for justice for creation and people impacted by environmental change
BUEN is seeking to enable the Baptists Together family to be a prophetic movement in facing the climate and environmental crisis shaped by our shared values;
  • Seeking to be a movement of Spirit led communities - hearing the cry of creation, recognising God’s call to caring for creation as an integral part of missional discipleship
  • Feel like One Team - draw together different regional and world voices across the generations, listening to our failures, needs, fears and dreams, inspiring one another to a common desire to live in harmony with creation as disciples of Jesus
  • Embracing Adventure - individually, locally, regionally and nationally, transition to a zero net carbon network by 2035
  • Inspiring Others - seek to influence wider society to be part of a movement capturing God’s creative intent for human beings to care for creation
  • Share a hunger for God’s coming kingdom - through prayer and action, in the face of the climate crisis, seek justice for the Earth, enabling the flourishing of all living things and its peoples
