How to become an Eco Church

The Diocese of Leeds is working to become an Eco Diocese. Help us on our journey by registering to become an Eco Church. 

Use the resources on the Eco Church website to celebrate your achievements in caring for creation in your church and work towards attaining a bronze, silver or gold Eco Church Award.

Have you joined the Green Journey?

The Diocese of Leeds works in partnership with Green Energy Consulting to offer parishes a package of energy saving services. Click here to find out how you could be saving money and cutting your carbon footprint.

 

Have you got a Parish Environment Representative and Policy?

The Diocesan Synod adopted a new Diocesan Environment Policy in March 2019. You can find out why a new policy was written and adopted here. It is the first step in our endeavour in becoming an Eco Diocese.

Read about the 5 year plan to implement the policy here

We would encourage every church to have a nominated Environment Representative on the PCC and to adopt your own Parish Environment Policy. You can adapt this model to suit your church.
