Taking Eco Church In An Hour to the next level

Published: Tuesday November 1, 2022

Eco Church in an hour logoWe’ve had the latest statistics back from Eco Church and nearly one-third of churches in the Diocese of Gloucester are registered for their Eco Church Award.

113 churches have taken that huge first step and registered their church for Eco Church. The Diocese of Gloucester has committed to being net carbon zero by 2030, and to do this, we need to work together.

So far, a fantastic 39 churches (plus the diocesan offices) have achieved their bronze award and 14 have achieved silver. That puts us in 15th position nationally, out of the 44 dioceses.

We’re so proud of all the hard work that you have put into caring for God’s world and the time and energy you have given to environmental work. But now it’s time to take it to the next level and start focussing on getting the next award.

If you’re at bronze or silver and struggling with where to go next, why not contact our diocesan Environmental Advisor, Cate Williams for a chat about what to do next?
