Eco Church

Holy Trinity Church has signed up for Eco Church and are the proud owners of an Eco Church bronze award!

A Rocha UK is a Christian Charity. Their vision is for churches of all denominations to care for creation as an integral part of loving their neighbours and following God faithfully. Holy Trinity is helping them to bring this vision to reality by participating in their Eco Church scheme. We are always looking for new ways to make our church and community more eco-friendly.

If you have any ideas or would like to get involved please get in touch by emailing the parish office.

For an introduction to the Eco Church scheme please watch this video:

The scheme covers 5 key areas:

  • Worship and Teaching
  • Buildings
  • Land
  • Community and Global
  • Lifestyle

How can we get involved?

Scripture tells us that we are all responsible for the care of creation, and so we all need to take steps beyond those taken in the church building and look at our own lifestyles. The first step is to do a lifestyle audit: click here for the A Rocha Lifestyle Audit Guide.

Once you’ve done that,  run projects to offset carbon and have a simple guide to help you calculate your carbon footprint and then offset it.

We’ve also prepared our own information to help you tread more lightly on the earth.
