Climate Action

God calls us as the church to care for creation, to stand with and stand up for the vulnerable and to resist non-violently the powerful forces of evil in this world opposed to God’s good purposes. We call on all members and congregations and regional churches of our Mennonite Church Canada family to join together in this eco-mission.

We must act.  We must act together. And we must act urgently.

Sustainability Leadership Group

In January of 2020 Mennonite Church Canada’s Joint Council approved the development of a strategy to give leadership in moving towards greater sustainability within its sphere of influence. In doing so, it formed the Sustainability Leadership Group with representation from across the nationwide church. This volunteer group works at a national level to guide our national and regional churches towards greater sustainability of ministries, programs, and buildings.

Engage Regionally

The regional churches of Mennonite Church Canada would be thrilled to hear from you. Bring your ideas, your spirit, and your energy. Connect with your region:

British Columbia  Alberta  Saskatchewan  Manitoba  Eastern Canada

Emissions Reduction Grant

Looking to improve the sustainability and efficiency of your church building? Get financial help through the MC Canada Emissions Reduction Grant! The purpose of this grant is to inspire congregations to lead their communities toward reducing both direct and indirect emissions of GHGs starting with their facilities. 

We invite you to donate to our Climate Action Fund which pays for the grants. We also encourage grant recipients to "pay it forward" allowing other churches to benefit.

Partners in Climate Action

We cannot do this alone. MC Canada partners with other organizations in climate action and creation care. More info coming.
