Green Apostle

Helping churches to work together for peace and justice.

daleen-ten-CateDaleen ten Cate is our Green Apostle (and NW Synod Missional Discipleship Mentor).

Green Apostle’s are individuals within Synods who help churches work towards climate justice. This includes supporting churches to become Eco churches. They have responded to the environmental crisis that has economic, social and political implications and feel called to raise awareness within their church settings, of climate disruption at local and national levels.

Green Apostles share a vision of a world in which:

  • There is a passionate love for God’s creation.
  • Christians are especially positive advocates for climate justice.
  • Care for God’s creation is embedded within the discipleship and mission of the church, and is an integral part of the individual spiritual journey.
  • Climate disruption has been challenged and where possible, reversed.

Daleen also gets involved nationally with many campaigns and works closely with A Rocha (Christian charity working to protect and restore the natural world) and  JPIT (The Joint Public Issues Team which is a partnership between the Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Methodist Church, and the United Reformed Church). 

The purpose of JPIT is to help churches to work together for peace and justice through listening, learning, praying, speaking and acting on public policy issues.
