An organisation that has been advancing the topic of creation care is A Rocha. Present in more than 20 countries globally, A Rocha is a family of Christian organizations which, inspired by God’s love, engages in scientific research, environmental education and community-based conservation projects.
Here are some useful resources on creation care by A Rocha:
Friends of A Rocha in Singapore has compiled a collection of stories on how ordinary Christians from different walks of life have humbly put their faith into radical action, and integrated the biblical ethos of creation care into the everyday. The book presents a refreshing local perspective on the distinctiveness of Christian environmental ethics, seeks to encourage fellow Christians on this creation care journey, and inspire those who have yet to begin.

A Rocha’s Field notes podcast, hosted by Peter Harris and Bryony Loveless, is an exploration of the ideas, practice and experience making a difference on the ground, through conversations with people who really know what they are talking about – from conservation scientists, explorers and biologists, to artists, entrepreneurs and theologians. With more than 10 episodes spanning a broad range of topics, you’re sure to find an episode that peaks your interest.
3. A Rocha blog
The A Rocha blog features thought leadership and stories on creation care. Their engaging blog posts also talks about current affairs with a touch of personal response, inspiring readers to reflect and take action in their own lives.
If you’re planning to conduct a beach clean-up, consider making time to dwell in God’s word before doing so. A Rocha has prepared materials for Christians to read and reflect on in preparation of the work that your hands will carry out.
