The John Ray Initiative (JRI) is an educational charity with a vision to bring together scientific and Christian understandings of the environment in a way that can be widely communicated and lead to effective action. At a time of climate crisis, it helps to resource and empower churches and Christians seeking to make change happen in their congregations and communities. 

Working with local church leaders of all denominations, both lay and ordained, it seeks to give them the tools to make a difference in their communities. This helps them to tackle the theological and practical barriers to action.


JRI runs a distance learning course, produces online publications and runs webinars.
