Eco Church


The earth is the LORD's and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it. (Psalm 24:1)


We believe passionately in the importance of caring for the world God has made, for the sake of the future not only of the planet but its people, particularly the poorest who are hardest hit by climate change. It's about loving our neighbour.

Our Eco Team is currently working towards an A Rocha Eco Church Silver Award.

We're using these 5 areas to assess our impact on the environment:

  1. Our church services
  2. Our buildings
  3. The land around the church
  4. Our lifestyle
  5. Our engagement locally and globally

We meet regularly to see how we can make progress in all five of these areas. Here are just a few of the small changes we've made recently to 'do our bit':

  • Putting more bird boxes up
  • Talking more about the environment in our Sunday Services
  • Using recycled toilet paper
  • Including a 'green corner' in our newsletter
  • Installing more secondary and double glazing
  • Putting in a bike rack
  • Installing 'Hive' smart heating system

There's much more in the pipeline!
