Become an Eco church


Eco Churches

One of the best things local churches can do to care for creation is to get involved with the Eco Church Scheme.

Diocesan Environment Officer, Canon Sandie Barton said: “We are proud to have achieved the bronze Eco Diocese award and that’s partly because 100 churches across the Diocese have signed up to the scheme.  Over 40 of those have already gained a bronze or silver award and I’m excited to see who will be first to gain gold!   It would be wonderful to see many more churches join Eco Church.  The scheme encourages members to take manageable, but meaningful steps towards becoming more sustainable and caring better for God’s creation.”

Getting your church involved in eco projects can be a great way to invite new people into your church community.  Ideas such as orgnising a wildlife area in your churchyard and asking a local school to help plant it, having a youth eco group, or organising a village litter pick could enable you to build relationships with different groups of people in your communities.

Please do email The Revd Canon Sandie Barton, our Diocesan Environment Officer to let her know if your church is registered or call 01638 720770.
