About Us

Why we get up in the morning

Globally, the Anglican Church has long been concerned with environmental issues. The Anglican Communion states that the fifth mark of mission is ‘to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the earth’. The ACSA environmental network aims to support churches and Dioceses to fulfil Gods call to be Earthkeepers and to care for creation.

Our History

The Environmental Network of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa was founded in 2004 with Bishop Geoff Davies as chair. Two Diocesan networks were formed JAEI (Johannesburg Anglican Environmental Initiative and the Natal Environmental Network. The Diocesan Environmental Group (DEG) was formed in Cape Town Diocese in 2011

In 2012 a Provincial Coordinator, Rev Rachel Mash was appointed and a youth Coordinator Ncumisa Magadla. The Network became a movement under the name of “Green Anglicans” and has now spread to Central Africa (Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Zimababwe), Kenya, DRC and Portugal.
