Eco Action

In November 2019 our Diocesan Synod voted to work towards becoming an Eco Diocese within two years, which means lots of our churches would need to register as Eco Churches if we are to succeed.

In addition, in February 2020, the Church of England General Synod voted for all part of the Church to work towards becoming carbon net zero by 2030.

You can read an updated summary of a recent Bishop’s Council paper (by clicking here) and Bishop's Council discussed a first draft of a new Diocesan Environment Policy when it met on 15 June 2020.

You can read more about how you can help your church become an Eco Church here and we are keen to recruit willing and enthusastic new members to our Diocesan Environment Group (DEG). You might also want to read this article about 'Four things Christians must do' in response to the UN's IPCC 'Code Red for Humanity' report in August 2021 here. 

The DEG meets roughly five times a year and works as a channel of communication between parishes and those working to safeguard creation, particularly working on the Eco-diocese target, planning events and sharing information and seeks to be an encouraging and empowering group of people passionate about God and planet!
