Eco Church is ‘A Rocha UK’s’ award scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth.
It is both a response to the biblical mandate to care for the earth, and a demonstration of the Christian hope for God’s world.
Eco Church covers all areas of church life: Worship and Teaching; Management of Church Buildings and Land; Community and Global Engagement; and Lifestyle. As such, it challenges churches to act in respect of the songs they sing and of the food they serve; of the energy they use and of the ethics of their investments; of the wildlife that finds a home on their land and of the water that flushes their loos; and so on…
We are delighted that St Paul’s with St Mary’s has been awarded an Eco Church Bronze Award.
