Online: Tue 18 Jan noon: EcoChurch 3 – Eco Church and Net Zero Carbon – This looks at the links between Eco Church and Net Zero Carbon; how they are different and how they inter-connect. It will focus mainly on the ‘Buildings’ section of the Eco Church survey, since it is heating and lighting a church building which creates most of a church’s carbon footprint. The webinar will explain about free carbon footprinting tools available to churches. The leader, Helen Stephens is the Church Relations Manager at A Rocha UK, and absolutely central to the running of the Eco Church programme across the country. Helen has supported hundreds of churches to get started in their Eco Church journey, and has a wealth of practical advice to offer.
