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

A Rocha UK “provide free, Eco Church resources to give lots of support and advice about how to make the changes your church needs to become an Eco Church. There are three levels of Award – Bronze, Silver and Gold. In order to qualify for an Award you must attain the required standard in each of the areas covered by the Eco Survey that apply to your church (some churches do not have buildings or land). You can see when you have gained sufficient points in each Eco Survey category by looking at the points gauges that appear on screen with the Eco Survey questions. The gauges will change colour as your points accumulate to reflect the level of Award you have achieved.”
