Welcome to our new Eco Diocese Officer

Polly, who is passionate about bees, involved in a ‘stop using harmful pesticides’ campaign as part of her local Justice and Peace Group.


We are delighted to welcome a new member to the A Rocha UK churches team in the newly created role of Eco Diocese Officer. Whilst Polly has recently started in her role, she is not totally new to Eco Church:

“Since moving to Hertfordshire seven years ago, I’ve been worshipping at High Street Baptist Church in Tring. During this time the church gained a gold Eco Church award and I’ve enjoyed being part of a church that strives to ‘do’ creation care. Prior to this I lived in West Africa and saw first-hand the effects of the climate crisis on rural communities. I strongly believe that the environmental catastrophe we face is a justice issue and the church has a vital role to play. I think one of the ways to approach this challenge is to build our Eco Church community and encourage and learn from one another.
I’m really looking forward to getting to know people within the diocese and supporting them as they progress with Eco Diocese.”

We are grateful to the Church of England for funding this new role and look forward to all that Polly brings to A Rocha UK. For now, if you would like to be in touch with Polly, please email her at ecochurch@arocha.org and include ‘FAO Polly Eaton’ in the subject line.
