Caring for God’s creation.
Our churchyard has been managed in an environmentally friendly way for many years. Following the launch of Eco-congregation by the Christian conservation organisation A Rocha, the Revd. Shirley Henderson launched the parish Eco-congregation initiative in 2005.
Eco-congregation helps churches to address environmental issues in all that they do, focussing on 3 main areas of church life in particular:
- spiritual: worship and teaching
- practical: things to do with buildings, land and church management
- mission: reaching out, both locally and globally.
Following an environmental audit in 2009, action plans and a Churchyard Management Plan were developed. The Eco-congregation policy was approved by PCC in March 2013, and has been taken forward by the parish Eco-team. A Rocha’s, Eco- congregation award was achieved in February 2016, and the Eco-church Bronze award was gained in 2018.
