EcoChurch - Practical Steps

How can you be involved?

3 of the 17 churches in our new South Warwickshire circuit are already involved.

  • Stratford became the first Methodist church in the country to gain a Gold Award in June;
  • Henley and Mickleton both reached Silver level this year.

So churches from the former Stratford & Evesham Circuit bring commitment, experience, and expertise on green issues into the new circuit.

The first step is to sign up with EcoChurch

We'd love your church to become involved and take part in this exciting initiative, which will challenge and equip you to care for God's world in all areas of your life together. It may also help establish new links with others in your communities.

Next — Speak to your church congregation about how they can be involved.

Once your church has amassed sufficient points, you will qualify for an Eco Church Award at Bronze, Silver or Gold level. Bronze and Silver Awards will be granted on receipt of written confirmation from your church leader that the survey responses are a true reflection of the current work and witness of your church. Gold Awards will only be granted following a visit to the church by Eco Church Assessors who need to be satisfied that your survey responses are an accurate reflection of your work and witness.

Award-winning churches will receive a certificate to mark their achievement and will have the option of purchasing (at cost) an Award plaque fashioned from recycled church pews to display on their premises.
