ECOCHURCH

We are working with A Rocha and their initiative: EcoChurch
By signing up to improve both the environmental efficiency and sustainability of our church buildings, church life and encouraging our church to care for the world entrusted to us, we hope to both demonstrate sound stewardship and encourage others to care for the environment.

 

 

We have a SILVER EcoChurch award.
This is a scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth.
