The UK's churches are waking up to the need to care for Gods creation.
Over 1500 churches have now registered for Eco Church, A Rocha's scheme to help churches celebrate what they already do to care for Gods earth and decide what action to take next. More than 400 have already achieved an award. These numbers represent real changes that churches have made to their worship and witness.
We're committed to keeping Eco Church free to access, but it isn't free to run: answering questions, creating new resources and processing awards for hundreds of churches all takes time. Even with some fabulous, committed volunteers, we still need more capacity to deliver the additional resources that churches are asking for to accelerate their progress.
The UK church has made great progress in recent years, but we need to accelerate if we are to safeguard the natural environment for the next generation.
Our common home needs, and our faith mandates, us to act together, at scale, to improve our relationship with the planet. Please help us continue to offer Eco Church so that churches everywhere can accelerate their efforts to improve their impact on the environment.
