Somerset Mendip Circuit - Caring for the Earth
Frome Wesley Methodist Church has been awarded Silver Eco Church status 2023 having achieved bronze Eco Church status 2022. This status means that the church has worked to both raise awareness of its environmental impact and consider what can be done to make the church more sustainable and eco-friendly. Congratulations to everyone at Frome Wesley MC and we look forward to following your story as you work towards the Gold award!
Glastonbury Methodist Church was awarded bronze Eco Church status in 2021 by A Rocha and followed it up by going further and achieving Silver award status in 2022! Huge congratulations to the team at Glastonbury. Is it time to go for Gold??
As the psalmist puts it ‘The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it’ (Ps 24) and so we are committed to playing our part in addressing the critical issues of global warming and climate change.
Under the banner of ‘Caring for the Earth’, a working party of the Circuit Leadership Team is encouraging church councils and individuals to promote ecological awareness within each local church and their wider communities. Resources to aid reflection and promote action on environmental issues are at Somerset Mendip Circuit Facebook page.
Regular updates on progress across the Circuit can also be found both there and in the Circuit magazine (The Stream), published quarterly.
