Christ Church West Wimbledon: Eco Church
Eco Church is the award scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s Earth and all Creation. It’s run for the Church of England by A Rocha UK, a Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world, both as a response to the biblical mandate to care for the earth, and as a demonstration of the Christian hope for God’s world. It is part of the worldwide family of A Rocha organizations committed to conservation action as an expression of Christian mission.
