Eco Church – Your Church caring for God’s Earth
As we worship God, we should surely care for the world God has created. From meditation to insulation, from location to invocation, loving God and his creation should impact everything in our churches.
This is why A Rocha UK has developed Eco Church – an award scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate their care for God’s earth.
It works by taking you through a survey of the different areas of your church’s life and work. Your answers will collect points towards an Eco Church Award. There are Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.
The survey looks at five key areas of church life:
- Worship and Teaching
- Management of Church Buildings
- Management of Church Land
- Community and Global Engagement
It takes into account whether or not you have land or even a building.
There are plenty of resources available to help you through. All you need can be found on the Eco Church website at ecochurch.arocha.org.uk.
Why not encourage your Church to sign up – and do share your stories with us via this website or the Congregationalist.
