Beulah URC in Rhiwbina, Cardiff has recently achieved an Eco Church Silver Award. We participated in the project, which is run by A Rocha UK, by completing the comprehensive online survey which assessed our success in caring for God’s earth.
Beulah’s Eco Group had responsibility for submitting the application but the responses reflect the ethos of our whole church. The questionnaire looked at how sustainable we are and covered all aspects of church life so we were able to include our switch to a renewable energy supplier, our divestment from fossil fuels and our Green Flag Community Garden Award.
Beulah is proud that its focus on caring for the environment has been recognised and we look forward to engaging with our local community as we strive towards a gold award in the future. On Saturday 18 September we held a Green Fayre as part of the Climate Coalition’s Great Big Green Week.
