Eco Church Bronze Award 2019 gained by The Church at Carrs Lane

Eco Church Status Achieved

Bronze Award Winner 2019

Becoming an Eco Church has been an aim of The Church at Carrs Lane for some time. We have worked hard over the past year to improve our performance with recycling activities and caring for God’s earth in different areas of our life and work.

The Eco Group responsible for helping us to improve submitted an OnA Rocha Eco Church Bronze Award 2019line Eco Survey recently. The survey took us through five key areas of church life:

  • Worship and teaching
  • Management of church buildings
  • Management of church land
  • Community and global engagement
  • Lifestyle

… and the good news is that The Church at Carrs Lane has been awarded the Bronze Award. We can now be called an Eco Church and are entitled to display the bronze award on our publicity materials.
