The Eco Church award scheme
 
The Eco Church award scheme, a project of A Rocha UK, is about to celebrate its first birthday.
Partnering with The Church of England, The Methodist Church, Christian Aid and Tearfund, this initiative has achieved much. A year ago St Paul's Cathedral was turned green for the evening to mark the launch. Since then hundreds of churches around England and Wales have registered and started their journey towards an Eco Church Award. 
To mark the first anniversary celebrations of Eco Church they are inviting churches across England and Wales to hold a 'Green Communion' as part of their worship services on Sunday 5th February, 2017. They have prepared ready to use resources and liturgy in conjunction with Canterbury Cathedral. The resources are all free to use and download at  http://ecochurch.arocha.org.uk/introducing-green-communion
The anniversary celebrations offer a great opportunity for more churches to register with Eco Church and deepen their journey in in 2017, showing that the church in its mission and life is caring for God's earth and pointing to the vision of the renewal of all things.  For more information about Eco Church please visit http://ecochurch.arocha.org.uk/
