The Eco Church scheme is run to promote care for God’s creation through each church’s Worship and Teaching, Building, Land, Global and Community Engagement and Lifestyle.
St Mary’s registered in 2021 and gained a bronze award. Since then we have worked on all five areas and are delighted to have recently been granted a silver award.
To continue our eco journey we ask anyone visiting to enjoy the peace of the churchyard; take note of the bird boxes and the bug hotels produced by the children. We ask that all those using our church building respect our eco ethos and use our crockery (no disposables), use only Fair Trade produce and recycle or reuse any waste. And please remember to switch off any lights or heaters when you leave.
May we allow the land we occupy to flourish in your care; may we share and protect both open space and managed earth, and build community with and through the land and all it sustains – for the earth is yours and all that is in it. Amen
