Eco Church is an award scheme run by A Rocha UK for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth. The scheme works by measuring performance across a broad spectrum to see how much we as a church are doing to play our part in caring for the environment.
The main areas are:
Worship and teaching
Management of church buildings
Community and global engagement
We believe that God created each one of us in His image, and to be his co-workers in stewarding and in caring for all of His creation, with mercy, compassion, justice and love. We have, therefore, setup a task force to ensure that we, as a church, are being as environmentally friendly as possible. Our task force is constantly looking at ways we can improve all that we do, but we also want to involve every one of you, as this is something we need to do together.
