Eco Churches

A ROCHA UK’s MISSION is to equip Christians and Churches to care for the environment – for God, for nature and all people. https://arocha.org.uk

ECO CHURCH is A Rocha UK’s award scheme for churches of all denominations in England and Wales. The free online survey and resources help churches record what they are already doing and help inform decisions on further steps in 5 key areas:
  • Worship and teaching 
  • Management of church buildings
  • Management of church land
  • Community and global engagement
  • Lifestyle

The survey takes account of whether or not your church has buildings or land, it is automatically saved and you can update it anytime. 

Start the Eco Church Survey to gauge where your church currently is, you may find you already qualify for an Eco Church Award!   
 

HORSHAM ECO CHURCHES encourage and inspire others to share ideas and find out more about caring for God’s world.
