Eco Church Awards

A Rocha UK's Eco Church Awards provide a framework and resources for churches who want to demonstrate their commitment to caring for the environment. Actions taken count towards awards at different levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. 

Find out more about Eco Church Awards here

If you want to find out more about how your church can get involved, you can fill in a simple survey that assesses where your church currently is in relation to the three different levels. You may find you already qualify for an Eco Church Award!

Take the survey here

We are aiming to have 20 churches from the Diocese registered and 10 awarded by the end of 2018. We'd love to encourage your church to join those who have already registered and gained awards.
