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
  • Buildings
  • Land
  • Community and Global Engagement
  • Lifestyle

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
