Caring for the Environment

We believe that the Church plays a vital role in caring for the environment, stewarding God's creation well for future generations.

Birmingham is one of the first three Dioceses to receive Eco Diocese accreditation, administered by A Rocha UK. Eco Diocese accreditation provides a framework for practical actions that help make us more environmentally friendly. 

We are also home to the Birmingham Anglican Climate Action group (BACA), a voluntary group who promote the practice of combating climate change within the Diocese and the wider Anglican Communion.

We support the Church of England's environmental goal of 'Shrinking the Footprint'; reducing our carbon footprint by reducing our energy usage.
