EcoChurch is an award programme managed by the Christian Environmental charity A Rocha UK. Churches are challenged to commit themselves to actions which are positive for God’s creation under five headings: Worship and Teaching; Buildings; Land; Lifestyle; and Community and Global. Registration is online and free although there is a charge for an award plaque, and donations to A Rocha are welcome for churches who are able to consider this. Those responsible for listed buildings will be glad to know that there are exemptions from certain expectations that would be impossible to implement in an ancient and protected building! The ethos is all about doing what we can and making a commitment to positive change, but not stressing about the impossible.
The focus of the ‘Next Steps’ seminars will be focused on exploring areas where people may have got stuck having started the process, with advice and discussion about how to move forwards. The seminar may also be of interest for those who have achieved Bronze and are moving onto Silver.

This event is part of a series supporting churches working towards an Eco Church Award. You may also be interested in attending one of our ‘Getting Started’ seminars, in the diary for 25th February and with more dates to come later in the year. Also coming soon: look out for specialist seminars and events with a more detailed focus on each of the five Eco Church headings.
