Eco Church

We have been awarded the Eco Church Silver Award!

Eco churches are part of an ecumenical programme helping churches make the link between environmental issues and Christian faith and putting this into practical action. St John’s is registered with A Rocha UK as an Eco Congregation.

A Rocha is a Christian charity working to inspire and equip churches to protect and restore the natural world.

There is a small Eco Church team who meet regularly to review our existing environmental initiatives and plan new activities around 2 main areas of church life:

  • spiritual: worship and teaching
  • practical: things to do with buildings, land and church management

Some of the initiatives:

  • Sorting our waste, and recycling whatever we can
  • Regular teaching and prayer with an environmental theme.
  • Making savings wherever possible on energy resources

‚ÄčIf you are interested in environmental issues and you have any ideas and suggestions on how we can expand what we are already doing, please email the church office:
