At St Edward's Church we are committed to care for God's earth as part of our everyday work and witness. As Christians we are called to be stewards of God's creation. For each individual this means evaluating how our lifestyle impacts the planet and making changes to minimise our negative impact where possible. As a Church and as a Community we encourage each other in these lifestyle changes.
We are also taking part in the A Rocha UK Eco Church award scheme. This helps us to look in detail at five key areas of church life:
- Worship and teaching
- Management of church buildings
- Management of church land
- Community and global engagement
A Rocha ("the rock" in Portuguese) is an international network of environmental organisations with a Christian ethos, founded in Portugal in 1983.
