What is Eco-Church?
Eco Church is A Rocha UK’s award scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth.
The Eco Church Project is designed to equip churches to express their care for God’s world in their worship and teaching; in how they look after their buildings and land; in how they engage with their local community and in global campaigns, and in the personal lifestyles of their congregations.
The actions taken count towards a prestigious Eco Church Award at Bronze, Silver or Gold level. Here at Sawley we have a Silver Award and are working hard towards Gold!
A Rocha Uk's vision is for churches of all denominations to care for creation as an integral part of loving their neighbours and following God faithfully.
Target Ten Project
At All Saints' we have adapted the Arocha Target Ten Project to focus on five species that we know are living in our churchyard.
Here are the five species with a brief explanation of what we are hoping to do to help them.
