A NEW documentary film seeks to convince conservative Christians in the United States of the reality of climate change and the need to take action to counter it.

Cowboy and Preacher, directed by the British filmmaker Will Fraser, tells the story of Tri Robinson, an Evangelical pastor in the Vineyard Church, in Idaho, who is a lifelong environmentalist. He has battled for years to persuade Evangelicals in the US that conservative Christianity and environmentalism are not mutually exclusive.

“Most environmental films seem to be framed for a liberal audience — i.e. they preach to the converted,” a press release says. “Cowboy and Preacher aims at the unconverted, while also offering liberals and non-Christians a fascinating portrayal of conservative Evangelical life, values and mindset.”

Tri Robinson will be preaching at St Peter’s, Kennington, in London, on 28 October. More information here.
