Working to Become an Eco-Church

Two of the subjects we are currently considering as a church are, air pollution and the planting of trees. Not all of us may have the space or desire to plant a tree but there are many garden shrubs and plants that can help ‘soak up’ air pollution. Roadside gardens have such potential and can really have an impact for managing rainwater and temperature, offering habitat to wildlife and reducing pollution.

Please do consider your front garden this spring, the addition of a small hedge, climbing plants on a trellis or flowers in pots can make such a difference to our local environment.

Working to be an Eco Church

Bread is full of symbolic meaning for Christians and in another step towards being an Eco Church we ask you to ‘LOAF’, which stands for food which is: Locally produced, Organically grown, Animal friendly and Fairly traded.

The decisions we make about our food have far-reaching effects, influencing the way food is produced and animals are treated. Buying food from local and regional sources means less climate-damaging food miles, less lorry traffic and supports the local economy.
Remember, we do live in The Garden of England.
