Tending to Creation

And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”(Genesis 1:28)

The Earth is sacred, and we have a responsibility to protect and cherish it.  One of our priorities at Immanuel Anglican Church is ensuring we are living up to our responsibility to care for creation.  This includes environmental sustainability, prudent use of resources, and conservation of the assets entrusted to us.

What actions can we take to not only improve the environment, but improve the quality of life for citizens in our community?  How can we be good stewards of the earth?

What you can do now

  1. Consistent use of the Blue boxes in the church building(s) 
  2. Consistent use of the Blue Bins for recycling and picked up by the city at our houses
  3. Dispose of used batteries safely.  Look for the box to collect used household batteries in our church building near the registration desk
  4. For those of you who garden, plant an extra row of vegetables to donate to community fridges
  5. Use the Drop and Go service at SARCAN to recycle your beverage containers and use the Immanuel code 3065864420.  The deposit money will go to the Immanuel account, and will be used for Tending to Creation initiatives.
  6. Begin planting a native plant garden (see the June 29th issue of the Greenwise Gazette)

What we’re planning to do

  1. Coordinate a group of volunteers to help take hazardous waste (paints, oil, etc.)  to designated sites on the days that the city of Regina runs their hazardous waste program.
  2. In 2022, obtain a plot in a community garden that Immanuel parishioners will tend and harvest.
  3. Identify an area of land that can be used to create an Food Forest or Edible Garden.  More information on what this is can be obtained HERE

Please email us at info@immanuelanglicanregina.ca if you have ideas for how we can continue to care for God’s creation.
