Creation Care as our Church Mission

To live a life that cares for God’s world and its creatures is part of our discipleship to Jesus Christ. We enrolled in the Eco-Church Programme (and before that Eco-Congregation) to help us integrate care for creation into all that we do.

In 2019 we became the first Methodist Church in the country to receive a Gold Eco-Church Award from environmental charity A Rocha. This followed on from three Eco-Congregation awards – in 2006, 2009 and 2014 – and recognises the progress we have made over more than seventeen years.
