Who we are
“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” – Micah 6:8
Inspired by Micah 6:8, the Micah Ministry is dedicated to helping St Andrews Baptist Church to live out the call to act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God.
We aim to inform the church on issues related to social justice and creation care. We particularly recognise that the effects of climate change impact people differently and those whose carbon footprint is the smallest, are impacted disproportionately. We feel that we can put our faith into action as Christians as that is what we are called to do as stewards of God’s creation, advocating on the part of those who don’t have a voice.
We sell Fair-Trade products including rice, sauces, jams and marmalades, coconut milk and tea.
Micah Ministry has launched a series of recommended eco-walks so that we can all enjoy a lovely outdoor walk in God’s wonderful creation. There are 4 walks in and around St Andrews – you can find out more by downloading this document here.
We would love for you to get involved. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would love to chat!
What is an Eco Congregation?
A Christian environmental charity helping and encouraging local churches in being good stewards of God’s creation.
Its vision is for “A Scotland that cares for God’s creation”
Its values are that we:
- care passionately for God’s creation.
- are a faith based movement.
- are rooted in local groups of Christians.
- work co-operatively with each other and with others who care about the environment.
- encourage transformational change at individual, community and national levels.
The Micah group are working with the church leadership on an action plan to ensure that, as a church and as Christians we act responsibly, environmentally and sustainably in all the ministries, outreach and regular church use.
We have a number of Fairtrade goods that you can buy from the church, kept in the fellowship room.
If you’d like more information about the Fairtrade goods please speak to Celia Sprot or email her at: email@example.com
The Garden project is all about getting to know each other better and, at the same time, growing vegetables and fruit together in a local garden. We currently have a few volunteers helping out in one garden in St Andrews but are always looking for more willing volunteers! We promise it isn’t hard work and we can promise you the opportunity to taste the fruit of your labour!
