Eco Church

Great news! We have just been awarded an A Rocha Bronze Eco Church award. Well done to everyone involved with this. Some of the improvements we have made in order to achieve this award include improvements to our Buildings section, notably by taking advice on recording the status of our boiler, and in our Global and Community Engagement – sometimes it was a question of finding out exactly what is happening in the church and in our groups, and making sure we included good work. We were able to bump our Land section up to Gold (we must do the grow-bags again!) and we had already reached Gold for Worship and Teaching from our first Survey for Bronze. It was very useful to have Rev. Liz Williams with us for a while, and she introduced us to Jacob from St Luke's, who was able to give us some tips. We welcome Suzy, with new and interesting ideas, to our group, and if we can improve even more on Buildings, and work on Lifestyle, we'll put in another Survey. If  Salisbury Cathedral can achieve Gold, maybe we can…
