Eco Church is a project of A Rocha UK, a Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world.
Churches respond to questions in an online survey about how they are caring for the earth. Points are awarded in five areas: Worship and Teaching, Buildings, Land, Community and Global Engagement, and Lifestyle. Applicants are awarded Bronze, Silver, or Gold status depending on their point scores.
In 2009 we became an Eco Congregation; in 2016 we were awarded a Silver Eco Church status; and in 2019 we achieved Gold Eco Church status.
Here’s how Cotteridge Quakers scored in each category to become a Gold Award Winner:
