New EcoChurch Southwest website for green churches

In an innovation in co-operation, the six Anglican Dioceses of the South West have launched a new website to highlight green churches in the region. The Dioceses of Bath and Wells, Bristol, Exeter, Gloucester, Salisbury and Truro recently shared in running a Lent Carbon Fast together. To follow this up will offer a range of resources to further encourage positive action for Christians in addressing climate change and environmental damage.

The website includes maps, case studies, worship material, examples of green projects and ideas for future action. These include composting toilets, Fairtrade churches, Eco-congregations and church buildings with solar panels.

The website is part of the national Church of England’s campaign of “Shrinking the Footprint” and links to other work promoting global climate justice.
