Eco Church is an award scheme run by A Rocha. You can see more on their website here but you might also find it helpful to consider what one deanery has done to start encouraging its churches to explore becoming an Eco Church: Akeley East Eco Church presentation.
We currently have 21 registered Eco Churches in the diocese including St Catherine’s, Burbage, which has a gold award, St Mary’s, Broughton Astley and the Bishop's Chapel in Leicester, which both have silver, and the Cathedral, which has bronze.
You can read stories about Eco Church and other environmental activity in the diocese by clicking here.
We'd love to hear from you about environmental projects and activities in your community. Email us on Communications@leccofe.org if you have news that might encourage or inspire others.
