Carey's journey as an eco-church

On 16 September 2020, Carey Church meeting agreed to register our interest with the eco-church programme run by the Christian environmental charity, A Rocha. Carey hopes in the near future to be able to achieve a bronze eco-church award, and then work towards a gold award, as we seek to encourage our church to become more environmentally aware and more active in creation care. We hope to learn from A Rocha, Christain Aid and similar organisations, as well as drawing on the experience of other churches, such as High Street Baptist Church, Tring. We know this will be a long and challenging journey, but we seek God's help in playing our part of caring for our planet in this time of environmental crisis.

 

Here is a personal reflection from our minister, '30 years a polluter', written this year in June, at the height of the covid pandemic. This short reflection is one small part of an awakening of God's people to the cry of this earth.
