A Rocha UK – Caring for God's Earth

  • London churches go for green

    London’s Anglican churches are engaged in a concerted effort to snatch the green gong – the Eco Church award.

    Ever since the launch of A Rocha UK’s Eco Church initiative earlier this year – when St Paul’s Cathedral scooped the first Bronze Award – the Diocese of London has been encouraging its congregations to embrace the scheme.

    As a result, a further 16 churches in the diocese have registered with Eco Church – with seven in Ealing Deanery alone, where A Rocha UK’s office and Wolf Fields community reserve are located. Two more Bronze Awards have been confirmed for St Mary’s, Hampton, and St James’s, Piccadilly. St Mary’s received its award from A Rocha UK chief Andy Atkins during a recent Sunday service (pictured).


Make a stand!

Hot on the heels of the Eco Church appeal fund, A Rocha UK set up their first ever stand at the Christian Resources Exhibition. You can join them by backing the campaign and equipping thousands more churches to become eco-friendly.


Raiders of the lost art

Raiders who robbed Wolf Fields of essential equipment have not only failed to halt its development into an urban nature reserve, but have also succeeded in promoting community art on the three-acre West London site.

Security has been stepped up there in the form of a massive shipping container – to the cost of £1,600. Locals have welcomed it with open arms – and with paintbrushes. Volunteers are ready to trigger their own art attack, adding their own creative expression to the site (pictured).
