Creation Care &
Eco Church

St Andrew's Church is determined to pursue ecological values and reduce our carbon footprint.


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”.

The St Albans Diocese has committed to aiming for net zero carbon production in all churches by 2050, and as our part we have signed up to the A Rocha programme of self assessment. This programme looks at how we operate as a church under five different categories: 


Worship and Teaching,

Buildings,

Land

Community Global Engagement

Lifestyle

St Andrew's has recently achecived the bronze A Rocha award.
