Welcome to Eco Church: A Rocha UK’s award scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth.
Our free online survey and supporting resources are designed to equip your church to express your care for God’s world in your worship and teaching; in how you look after your buildings and land; in how you engage with your local community and in global campaigns, and in the personal lifestyles of your congregation.
The actions you take will count towards a prestigious Eco Church Award at Bronze, Silver or Gold level. Complete our Eco Survey to gauge where your church currently is in relation to the three different levels; you may find you already qualify for an Eco Church Award!
Our vision is for churches of all denominations to care for creation as an integral part of loving their neighbours and following God faithfully.
Help us bring that vision to reality by participating in Eco Church.

Eco Church turns five – celebrate with us!January 28, 2021
On 26 January Eco Church became five years old. Covid has prevented a face to face ‘birthday party’, but on 26 March we will be holding an online event to celebrate the extraordinary development of the programme, to thank all who have contributed, and to pray together. And we have so much to thank God and you for. Five years ago, when Eco Church was launched, we set a target to reach 10% of churches (or about 4,500) across England and Wales in 10 years. The idea, based on research, was that 10% would be a ‘tipping point’ after.
