Friday 20 March 2015 at 20:22Welcome Canon Goddard!
OurVoices is proud to announce Canon Giles Goddard of St John’s Church, Waterloo as a new Spiritual Ambassador. An honorary Canon of Southwark Cathedral, Goddard joins the OurVoices network of senior figures from diverse religious and spiritual traditions supporting our work in raising climate awareness and building support for a strong climate agreement this year.
Since being ordained 20 years ago, Goddard has worked to ensure the church responds to the challenge of climate change.
As a member of the General Synod of the Church of England, Goddard is responsible for bringing a motion to the governing body affirming its commitment to fighting climate change. The motion passed last year and ensures the church’s investment policies are “aligned with the theological, moral and social priorities.” Goddard also serves on the board for Operation Noah, and has been an integral voice in calling for the Church of England to divest.
Canon Goddard joins OurVoices at a crucial time. We have less than 9 months to show our leaders why it is morally imperative to make the strongest climate agreement for our planet.
Join us in celebrating all of Canon Goddard’s work at the intersection of faith and climate justice!
