• Happy birthday, Eco Church!

    green communion story pic 4 - 1Churches across England and Wales celebrated in a big way the first birthday of A Rocha UK’s unique award scheme Eco Church.

    A total of 1,500 downloads of a specially written Green Liturgy and 700 downloads of an earth-friendly bread recipe helped churches rise to the occasion.

    Celebrations kicked off with a special service at Canterbury Cathedral on 4th February. Led by Bishop of Dover Rt Rev Trevor Willmott and Archdeacon of Maidstone Ven Stephen Taylor, it was attended by Eco Churches from across the diocese. Nationwide, services started the following day on 5th February.

Help us hold on to our home

Home is where you hang your hat – and all our hats are hung at 18-19 Avenue Road. Will you help us keep it that way? That’s the message from A Rocha UK – which has a great base thanks to the generosity of supporters – but needs new supporter loans to stay there.

A Rocha UK’s ‘home’ is two knocked-together houses in West London (pictured).

It’s a Christian community encouraging collaboration at the heart of multicultural Southall – a solid demonstration of A Rocha UK’s core values.
