Eco Church

It is early days for the newly formed circuit, but there is every indication that 'Caring for Creation' will become an increasingly important aspect of our new circuit life.

The Birmingham District Synod recently strongly approved a motion to become an EcoDistrict, and has already set up an advisory group to move this forward. Stratford and Evesham Circuit (as was!) has a long and proud history on environment, first with EcoCongregation ( now EcoChurch), becoming an EcoCircuit ( with 4 of its 8 churches receiving Gold or Silver EcoAwards) just before the reorganisation took place in September.

The 'Southern' churches in the new circuit, Stratford (with a Gold award), Henley and MIckleton (with Silver awards), bring a lot of experience, and enthusiasm for environment and sustainability concerns into the new circuit. Not only is this an important aspect of Christian discipleship, it is also one good way of making links with the community.
