Creation Care &
Eco Church

In July 2022, PCC committed to St Andrew's Church becoming carbon net zero by 2030.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has stated that climate change is:
“The greatest challenge that we and future generations face... Our sacred duty is to protect the natural world we have been so generously given, as well as our neighbours around the world, who will be the first affected”.

As a Church we have signed up to the A Rocha programme of self assessment, and achieved the Silver Eco Church award in Autumn 2023. We aim to reach the Gold award by 2025. The A Rocha awards look at how we operate as a church under five different categories: 

Worship and Teaching,



Community Global Engagement

Why not?  

Have a look at your bulbs at home and see where you can make a switch?
