Who we are

Operation Noah banner at a march

Operation Noah is an ecumenical Christian charity providing leadership, focus and inspiration in response to the growing threat of catastrophic climate change endangering God’s creation.

We are an inclusive group of committed Christians from across the UK. Our trustees, staff and supporters are cross-denominational and include members of the Catholic, Anglican and free churches. We work closely with like-minded individuals and organisations who share our vision. We are part of the Climate Coalition (formerly known as Stop Climate Chaos).

Launched in 2004, Operation Noah was the first Christian campaign to focus exclusively on the urgent need to address the global climate crisis.

The theological basis for our work was set out in the Ash Wednesday Declaration, launched at the beginning of Lent 2012. The Declaration challenges the church to realise that care for God’s creation – and concern about climate change – is foundational to the Christian gospel and central to the church’s mission.

Our campaigning work is our practical response to the Ash Wednesday Declaration. Our current campaign, Bright Now, is to persuade the Churches in the UK to disinvest from fossil fuel companies. We are working with other Christian organisations on a Year of Prayer for climate change during 2014–15.
