Following a year long project completed in the face of the lockdown, St Mary’s was informed this week that it has been awared a Bronze Award in the Eco-Church work of the leading global Christian environmental charity, A Rocha.

The award is given to churches who demonstrate – across a number of categories ranging from worship content, to church maintenance and the care of the churchyard  – their growing awareness and commitment to responding to the climate emergency. Led by a working group of church members and clergy, St Mary’s has taken this first step in committing to a greener, healthier future in and through its life.

Commenting on the award, Reverend Aaron Kennedy, Associate Vicar for Community Development and Mission, said, “This award marks the first step at St Mary’s in fulfilling our commitment to Treasuring God’s Creation, one of five central commitments of our Mission Action Plan 2025, and the first goal reached. Across the coming year we will be working hard to taking the next step – A Silver Award!”

St Mary’s will receive a sustainably-sourced, wooden plaque in due course which will be put up in the church to mark our acheivement.
