Eco Church logo- Eco Church is a A Rocha Uk Project to encourage churches to be more environmentally friendly

Climate Change and biodiversity loss pose a serious threat to the world that we live in and we believe that, as a church, we believe that responding to this is an essential part of our role in looking after the amazing world that God has provided for us.
As a result in 2019, We committed to becoming an Eco Church and have signed up to the Eco Church project set up and run by A Rocha. To achieve this, we complete an online Eco Survey about how we care for God’s earth in different areas of our life and work.
As part of this commitment, we will be looking at 5 aspects of our church life and how we can become more environmentally friendly.

The 5 areas are:

Worship and teaching
Management of church buildings
Management of church land
Community and global engagement

We were awarded the Bronze Eco Church award from A Rocha in August 2023 and are now working towards obtaining the silver award.

We are a Fairtrade Church and committed to using Fairtrade products wherever possible as well as encouraging others to use Fairtrade products too. Climate change poses the biggest dangers for those in the poorest communities who will have to survive in extreme weather and rising temperatures which will affect their ability to grow crops. By supporting Fairtrade suppliers, they are able to become more resilient to climate change whilst also reducing the carbon footprint of the goods that they provide
