Eco Church

Eco Church is an award scheme from A Rocha UK for churches that want to go green.

The free online survey and supporting resources are designed to equip churches to express their care for God’s world in their worship and teaching; in how they look after their buildings and land; in how they engage with their local community and in global campaigns, and in the personal lifestyles of their congregations.

We are registered as a Synod and we are delighted that the following churches have achieved Eco Church Awards:

Barry Uniting Church Bronze
Hope & Market Square, Merthyr Tydfil Silver
St John’s, Buckley Bronze
Tyddyn Street, Mold Bronze
Uniting Church, Sketty Silver

Eileen Newington, of Beulah URC in Cardiff, is the Green Advocate for the Synod. Please contact Eileen through the Synod Office to let her know that your church has registered for Eco Church and if you would like any support in responding to environmental issues.

Eileen’s presentation from the Autumn Synod meeting and accompanying notes are available to download. Visit the worship page to explore ‘Caring for Creation’ resources for events and services, including links to organisations referred to in the presentation.
