A Rocha UK’s Eco Church award scheme has been welcomed by former Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams as part of a ‘tectonic shift’ in Christian culture.
Launching Eco Church at St Paul’s Cathedral on 26th January, Dr Williams said environmental concerns need to ‘embed more deeply’ into the Church’s mindset. ‘But progress has been made,’ he told his audience, ‘you here tonight are a part of that.’
About 300 people packed out the cathedral crypt – which was illuminated green for the launch. Using iPads available at the reception, people saw Eco Church just after it went ‘live’ with advice on applying environmental issues across the spectrum of church life.
