Examples of practical actions taken by local churches
Do you need ideas about what your church could do?
Have a look at some of the links below.
Individual churches have done many green things since we reported on the Christian Ecology Link Millennium Certificate in 2000 (The certificate was first devised in 1997 exactly 20 years ago)
It is inspiring to hear what individual churches are doing. This page is just a taster, selected by your webeditor. Send us your news if you have stories to share.
And if you haven’t entered all ready, do enter for one of these:-
Eco Church (an award scheme designed for churches in England and Wales) or
Eco-Congregation (for churches in Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Canada, Hungary, USA) or
Livesimply (for Catholic churches in England and Wales and supported by CAFOD).
These projects give awards and publicity to churches that have done green things, and most importantly, encourage others.
especially at Environmental projects at Elkstone church (includes various Eco-Loos!)
