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.

Platform Change

We have developed and launched a new online app for Eco Church in order to provide additional user functionality (e.g. multiple users able to log in from one church) and to simplify the A Rocha UK admin processes. You will now be able to register your church (or check to see if someone else has already registered it), complete a survey and apply for an award all via the online app.

If you are an existing Eco Church user, then you will need to register yourself on this new app and link your registration to your church when you will then be able to access your existing surveys.

Our hope is that the new Eco Church platform is as easy to navigate as before, however, we would strongly encourage you to watch a short video of completing the process of registering as an individual, joining a church or registering a new church.

We also recommend you read the Frequently Asked Questions.

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 £100, the future of the programme would be secure.
