Eco Church is a new, web-based award scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth. It is organised by A Rocha UK, a Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world, both as a response to the biblical mandate to care for the earth, and as a demonstration of the Christian hope for God’s world.
This scheme is designed to motivate and resource churches in establishing caring for God’s earth as an integral part of their everyday work and witness, working with their local communities to achieve a more sustainable future.
