Church of England Diocese of Birmingham St. Peter Balsall Common

Eco-Church

St Peter's tries, as part of its Christian responsibility, to be eco-friendly and support recycling and other initiatives. Our Hall has been made as efficient as possible, and we are seeking all the time to do better! A few years ago, our energy efficiency and eco-co-ordinator posted details on the Link (below), but we have not been able to update that page, so why not visit us and see for yourself? We now have a much more eco-friendly church and Hall!

Bring batteries, old pairs of glasses, printer cartridges, stamps and things like that which can be left in boxes in the Hall and Baptistry (at the back of Church) for recycling. Our Hall has its own solar panels and several of the heaters run directly off these! Users are advised to use the heaters which are linked directly to the panels if they only need a small amount of extra heat. 
We have recently replaced all the main lighting in the Hall with low-powerusing LED lights and it seems much brighter as well!

We welcome visitors, and are keen to share our experiences with others.
