Stories from the Communion Forest

Communion Forest supporters

I encourage you to join in this exciting initiative, whether by protecting a precious environment, restoring a degraded one or planting something new. All these activities are spiritual acts too.

The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby Archbishop of Canterbury

May we go hand in hand in living out the Fifth Mark of Mission that calls us to fight to safeguard the integrity of creation and to sustain and renew life on Earth.

The Rt Revd Marinez Bassotto Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of the Amazon
