ECO. CHURCH

St Pauls have been working on an Eco Church Award primarily through the efforts of Carol Griffiths well supported by our Wardens, she writes “We wrote to you just recently to tell you a little about Eco Church, and that, having achieved the Bronze Award, we were aiming for the Silver. Each of the three levels of awards-Gold, the third-means achieving increasingly stiff standards in this ecumenical Church Environmental Award system. Do look it up-its easy to get onto our St Paul's site-and you wont have to do anything! https://ecochurch.arocha.org.uk/

It commits us, as a church, to higher green standards-so some of us have committed to litter pick, use green cleaning materials, include green issues and hymns in our services, use only renewable energy and so on. The constant reports about Climate Change are so apocalyptic, we all need to do our bit”

Well done all of you!
