The Diocesan Environment Policy, “Growing Greener Churches,” was launched in June 2008 by Bishop George and David Shreeve (Environmental Advisor, Archbishops’ Council). Based on the Eco-congregations programme it commits the diocese as a whole to reduce energy use by 5% year on year and encourages parishes to consider the environment in all they do, from worship to churchyard management.
Each parish or group of parishes has been asked to identify a person with a heart for the environment to be their Green Champion and contact person for Growing Greener Churches news.
For further information and to register your Green Champion contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: 01636 817232.
There is currently one Eco-congregation in this Diocese – which is St Edmund’s Church, Mansfield Woodhouse.
The Revd David McCoulough
