About the Prophetic Activist scheme

Are you passionate about Climate Justice? Do you want to see the church rise up and speak out for justice? Become a Prophetic Activist and gain the tools, training and community to make it happen.

Over the 6 months of the Prophetic Activist Scheme course we will equip and empower you as an activist to build your own campaign. No need to worry if you have no prior experience, or if you feel like you already have lot’s, this is a space to learn from one another.

Together alongside other justice-seeking young adult Christians we will build a climate justice movement to bring real change. It’s time to shake up the church, step up and add your name.

So, how does it work?

What we offer you:

  • An all-expenses paid training residential 
  • An online training webinar, once a month 
  • Facilitated workshops to lead you through the campaign development process 
  • An experienced mentor to meet with every 4-6 weeks 
  • Increased confidence in your ability as a campaigner 
  • Insight into campaigns work at Christian Aid 
  • A network of young adult Christians to connect with 

What we need from you:

  • A commitment to attend the residential weekend and online sessions 
  • Optional comitment to engage with and meet with your mentor every 4-6 weeks 
  • A vision for climate justice, an eagerness to learn and a passion to make it a reality 

Previous campaigns

Our previous prophetic activists have left an amazing legacy of campaigning.

The 2022/23 PAS cohort have been inspiring their churches to take action on climate justice. To support their churches and others in the church community, they have written a climate justice resource: How to Be a Climate Justice Steward. Check it out below.

How to be a Climate Justice Steward

A Prophetic Activist resource to inspire and inform your climate campaigning.

Our 2021/22 Prophetic Activists launched their campaign, 'Project Climate Finance'. They campaigned to ensure those most affected by climate change are supported through climate finance. Take a look at the video to see more of their journey!

Our amazing 2020 cohort created their campaign, calling for the UK government to stop funding fossil fuels overseas. Along with some incredible partners, they achieved a campaign win in December 2020 and their petition reached 71K signatures!
