Eco Church

Hereford Diocese supports churches engaging with A Rocha scheme to promote caring for God’s earth

The gospel is good news for the whole of creation, as well as for human beings. We are called to a response to the biblical mandate to care for the earth and through this demonstrate Christian hope for God’s world. We want to demonstrate this across our Diocese to others, being beacons of hope for a brighter environmental future.

A Rocha UK is part of an international Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world. Their Eco Church awards are designed to motivate and resource Christians and churches to make caring for God’s earth an integral part of their everyday work and witness, using a straightforward web-based award scheme.

Eco Church offers a free online survey, enabling churches to record what they are already doing to care for God’s earth, reflect on what further steps they want to take and then put it into action. Resources to help with each new step are provided along the way – for worship and teaching; management of church buildings and land; community and global engagement and lifestyle.

Marches Christian Environmental Network (M-CENT) are also supporting and encouraging churches across the Diocese to join in with this scheme. Be inspired and show your care for God’s creation by signing up for Eco Church and inspire your local community too.
