Eco Church is a scheme run by A Rocha which guides churches in England and Wales towards expressing care for creation in five areas:
- Worship and teaching
- Management of church buildings
- Management of church land
- Community and global engagement
Once churches are registered they can apply for Eco Church Awards at the levels of Bronze, Silver and Gold. Any denomination or church meeting in any kind of building can register for the scheme.
CH URC are currently closing in on the Bronze award. Several local URCs are working on awards; congratulations to Gatley URC, just attained Silver. The Synods are in competition to get the most churches with awards (NW will do well because we have nearly the most churches).
