Welcome to Eco Church: A Rocha UK’s award scheme for churches in England and Wales

Complete the free online survey for your church and earn points based on how you care for God’s earth. You can apply for a bronze, silver or gold award when you earn enough points across all categories. We’ve got loads of resources to help you and your church express your care for God’s world. The survey takes you through five key areas of church life:

  • Worship and teaching
  • Buildings
  • Land
  • Community and global engagement
  • Lifestyle

If you are a Church of England church in the Diocese in Europe then you can participate in the Eco Church programme and work towards an Eco Church award.

If you live in Scotland please head over to Eco Congregation.

If you live in Ireland please head over to Eco Congregation Ireland.

If you are a Catholic community (church, parish or school) please head over to Live Simply run by Cafod.

A Rocha UK is a Churches Together in England member and accepts the CTE's Statement of Belief. As such, we welcome any church or organisation (where applicable) that supports this to join the Eco Chuch scheme. 

Eco Church is provided free of charge, to help as many churches as possible celebrate what they’re doing to care for the environment and decide what to tackle next. It costs us money to keep it running, though.

If every church participating in Eco Church donated £125, the future of the programme would be secure.

Please give now, and help the church take a leading role in tackling the great environmental challenges of our time.
