Some of the pilot churches that have already begun this process, will highlight some of the ‘highs and lows’ of their journeys so far. Following lunch (provided) participants will be able to chose from ten practical workshops focused on the five themes covered by the eco church survey: Buildings, workshop and teaching, lifestyle, community and global awareness and churchyards.
