We are delighted to report that Epping United Reformed Church is now registered with Eco-Church and are working to care for God's earth and to achieve a bronze award.
Eco-church involves five areas of church life:
- Worship and Teaching
- Community and Global Engagement
The quest to be an eco church was launched with an Eco-Service led by Lindsey Brown — celebrating creation and how we can safeguard it — at the United Service held on 29 September.
Some of the actions which have been done or are planned include:
- Bug hotels, bird feeders, wildlife friendly plants and compost bin in the garden
- Environmentally focused junior church and toddler group sessions. Recently the junior church have been learning all about the bugs found in the Bible
- Recycling stations (some in aid of local charities) for used stamps, ink cartridges & Mobile phones
- Using recycled paper
- Using environmentally friendly cleaning products
- Being a Fairtrade church
- Minimising resource use
- Promoting eco-church to other local churches
