Climate change and safeguarding the future of the planet are some of the biggest challenges that peoples and governments across the world face. It is a crisis that disproportionately affects poor people and “left behind” communities. These issues speak to our calling and duty as Christians to care for God’s world and to protect the most vulnerable.
St Martin’s has joined the A Rocha UK award scheme and we are delighted to report that we have been awarded a bronze award under their Eco Church scheme for churches in England and Wales “who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth”.
This demonstrates that we:
- express our care for God’s world in our worship and teaching
- look after our buildings and land
- engage with our local community and in global campaign
- reflect eco-sensitive values in the personal lifestyles of our congregation
