Somerset Mendip Circuit - Caring for the Earth
Glastonbury Methodist Church has just been awarded bronze Eco Church status by A Rocha. 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 Glastonbury MC and we look forward to following your story as you work towards the silver award!
A Rocha UK is producing Climate and Pastoral Care resources for churches and individuals as part of the Climate Sunday campaign. This resource packet will be made available from July on the Climate Sunday website. Climate Sunday is an interdenominational campaign aiming to mobilise churches on climate issues in this important year of COP26, the International Climate Summit in Glasgow in November 2021. You can find out more on the Climate Sunday website here.
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.
