London churches go for green

25 July 2016, Comments Comments Off on 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).

eco church map july enews 2016 - 1Eco Churches are ‘springing up all over the place’. That’s the view of A Rocha UK’s Dr Ruth Valerio as her team launch an online map to show the extensive cross-country coverage of the charity’s award scheme.

From the Isle of Man to Margate, from Hexham to Hampshire, any of the 300 registered churches can be identified by pins on an electronic map (pictured right).

Supporters can back this growing movement by donating online (quote EC201605 in the comments box) or giving by post (FREEPOST RSSB-SCBG-CSKR, A Rocha UK, 18 Avenue Road, Southall UB1 3BL – use code ‘EC201605’ on the reverse of any cheque or charity voucher sent).
