In 2019 we registered with Eco-Church to care for God’s earth and in September 2020 ec-award-buttons-2020---bronzewe achieved a bronze award. Eco-church involves five areas of church life:

  • Worship and Teaching
  • Buildings
  • Land
  • Community and Global Engagement
  • Lifestyle

We launched our quest to be an eco church with an eco-service celebrating creation and how we can safeguard it.

Some of the actions which we have done include

  • Bug and bee hotels, bird feeders, wildlife friendly plants and compost bin in the garden
  • Regular Eco Services
  • Environmentally focused junior church and toddler group sessions.
  • Including environmental issues in our church magazine and Facebook page
  • Recycling stations (some in aid of local charities) for used stamps, ink cartridges & Mobile phones
  • Recycling and using recyled paper and other recycled products
  • Calculated our carbon footprint
  • Using environmentally friendly cleaning products
  • Fairtrade church
  • Minimising resource use
  • Promoting eco-church to other local churches
