St Edmund’s, Roundhay

As winners of the Eco-Congregation Award (the precursor to Eco Church), St Edmund’s, Roundhay embraced Eco Church as a means of continuing their work to care for creation as an expression of Christian mission. Completing the online survey was a source of great encouragement because it served to illustrate the progress they’d already made. Reducing the carbon footprint of the church building was – and will continue to be – the biggest challenge on account of the costs involved. Nevertheless, having achieved a Bronze Award the church is determined to progress to Silver by working with people from across the congregation.
