We’re gathering the Eco Churches together for two packed days of talks and workshops this October— one in Sheffield and one in London.
Delegates will have the opportunity to put practical questions from their churches to our experts and hear the stories of other churches working towards the Eco Church Award.
SURGERIES & STORIES
Contributors will include, among others – our CEO Andy Atkins, Eco Church Manager Nigel Hopper, our Conservation Manager Andy Lester, Bishop of Kingston Rt Rev Richard Cheetham, A Rocha International Director of Theology Rev Dave Bookless, Tearfund Global Advocacy and Influencing Director Dr Ruth Valerio – formerly of A Rocha UK – and Historic England Senior Architectural Conservator Robyn Pender.
They will present seminars, surgeries and stories. The southern conference will take place on 7th October at St James’s Church, Piccadilly, London. The northern conference will be held on 21st October at St Andrew’s Psalter Lane Church, Sheffield. Each one-day event will run from 10am–4.30pm.
Eco Church is our award scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to be good news for God’s earth. More than 600 churches have registered so far with this project, which offers a free online survey and supporting resources.
CARE FOR CREATION
‘Our vision is for churches of all denominations to care for creation as an integral part of loving their neighbours and following God faithfully,’ said Nigel Hopper. ‘This conference will help them make a start.’
