​Becoming an Eco Diocese

Earlier this month, the Diocesan Eco Group presented to Diocesan Synod to start
steps towards becoming an Eco Diocese. Many of us are very aware of the major
threats to the environment and of climate change. As Christians, we see it as part of
our stewardship of God’s gifts to us, to protect the environment by becoming more

The Eco Church and Eco Diocese schemes offer practical suggestions of how to support
this vision. These include teaching about caring for God’s earth in worship, conservation
of churches and their land, using Fairtrade items, recycling, toilet twinning, and reducing
pollution through car-share schemes or walking. 

Churches can take the national Eco Church award survey, to assess how environmentally
friendly their church is, and could achieve a bronze, silver or gold award. St Cassian’s,
Chaddesley Corbett, in the Diocese of Worcester, has already achieved a bronze level
Eco Church award. Several other environmentally friendly churches in the diocese are
also working towards this. 

Pray that the proposal to Diocesan Synod will encourage more churches in our diocese
to become more eco-friendly and better stewards of God’s wonderful world.
