We have recently (September 2019) registered with Eco-Church and are now working to care for God’s earth and to achieve 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 or planning to do are:

  • Bug hotels, bird feeders, wildlife friendly plants and compost bin in the garden
  • Environmentally focused junior church and toddler group sessions. Recently the junior church have been learning all about the bugs found in the Bible
  • Recycling stations (some in aid of local charities) for used stamps, ink cartridges & Mobile phones
  • Using recyled paper
  • Using environmentally friendly cleaning products
  • Fairtrade church
  • Minimising resource use
  • Promoting eco-church to other local churches
