 Coventry becomes an Eco Diocese

One of the Five Marks of Mission is 'To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth'. Many dioceses have identified Eco Church as a key tool to encourage churches to engage in creation care; this led A Rocha UK to introduce the idea of Eco Diocese.

Amongst other things, Dioceses need an agreed Environmental Policy and, for Bronze Award, to have at least 10% of its churches registered for Eco Church with 5% at Bronze. The Diocese of Coventry is registering as an Eco Diocese in the New Year as part of our centenary celebration.

Could your church consider signing up to Eco Church in 2018?
