We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a “Silver” award as an Eco Church. We have achieved this award just Six Months after we achieved Bronze and 15 Months after we started the project. This initiative is run by A Rocha who say the ECO Church scheme is open to churches of any denomination who “Wish to demonstrate that the Gospel is Good News for Gods Earth”.

The Scheme is organised under various headings as follows:-

1. Worship and teaching 

2. Buildings

3. Land

4. Community and Global Engagement

5. Lifestyle. 

We have been sent a certificate as well as the picture above and this will be displayed in the church along with a plaque in due course.

More details of what we are up to can be found in other blogs on this site, the easiest way to do this is to use the search button at the top of the screen.

We will be continuing to engage with Eco Church and are now working our way towards a Gold Award, but this may take a while longer as many more churches have achieved Silver than have got to Gold at present.
