Climate Action Team

Our Mission

The purpose of AHCC’s Climate Action Team Affinity Group is to engage the congregation and the neighborhood in an ongoing program of education, advocacy, and action to make our church, our homes, our individual practices and the State of Connecticut more environmentally friendly in a way that both respects and preserves God’s gift of this beautiful earth and reduces our individual and collective carbon footprint on it.

We are implementing the Southern New England United Congregational Church’s (SNEUCC) “Green Congregation Challenge” – a step-by-step approach that helps churches take small, but consequential, steps toward protecting God’s Creation. The challenge is comprised of four levels of recognition, each with five action categories: Educate; Organize; Reduce, Reuse, Rethink; Connect; and Advocate. These actions will help us integrate creation care throughout the life of AHCC.

In April 2024, AHCC earned recognition of Level 2 of the SNEUCC Green Congregational Challenge! 

We would love to hear from you. And we would welcome your help and participation in any way. The Climate Action Team meets once a month, on a Wednesday evening via Zoom.
