In Autumn 2020 the PCC held a preliminary discussion about EcoChurch and gave the go ahead to launching our Eco Church ambitions. We are really looking forward to updating you with our progress and to opening up discussion as we think more about how we can expand action and engagement in this project.
Taking part in the Eco Church – An A Rocha UK Project award scheme is certainly a journey rather than an end in itself. It is the combination of many actions that show, as a church that we care for God’s world.
A Rocha UK has five core values:
Christian – Underlying all we do is our biblical faith in the living God, who made the world, loves it and entrusts it to the care of human society.
Conservation – We carry out research for the conservation and restoration of the natural world and run environmental education programmes for people of all ages.
Community – Through our commitment to God, each other and the wider creation, we aim to develop good relationships both within the A Rocha family and in our local communities.
Cross-cultural – We draw on the insights and skills of people from diverse cultures, both locally and around the world.
Cooperation – We work in partnership with a wide variety of organisations and individuals who share our concerns for a sustainable world.
