At our Circuit Meeting in March 2021 members voted in favour of working towards being an Eco Circuit.
The Circuit was awarded Bronze Eco Circuit status in June 2023,
Helen Stephens, the Church relations Manager for A Rocha UK
said “It's encouraging to see how much environment related activity there
is across the Circuit and not least the number of
registered and awarded churches. It's a testament to what's possible with
collective focus and action with others.”
To support our Eco Circuit status a number of our churches are working towards accreditation as an Eco Church.
