Lyme Regis Baptist Church gained a Bronze Eco Church Award in February 2016. One of the things they did by way of working towards their Award was to switch to a renewable energy company to supply the electricity and gas used by the church. This has made a big difference to their carbon footprint! However, they also found that smaller things – like using eco-friendly cleaning products – really helped the church family to reflect on the importance of looking after the environment as an expression of their faith.
“What I have particularly enjoyed about Eco Church is how accessible and easy to use it is. It gets churches thinking about the environment on a practical, spiritual and missional level in a way that I don’t think the church has ever been challenged to before. It looks at all areas of church life and provokes you to think about areas you had never thought of having an impact on the environment”.IZZY WOODMAN, ECO CHURCH REP, LYME REGIS BAPTIST CHURCH
