Eco-Congregation has an Award scheme designed to:
- affirm the good environmental work of churches
- witness to the wider world that churches care for God’s creation
The Award is given to churches that have:
- undertaken an environmental check-up or audit
- undertaken activities or initiatives in each of the following three areas:
spiritual: worship and teaching — linking environmental issues with the Christian faith e.g. through services, children’s work or an adult homegroup
practical: practicing what is preached e.g. an energy, churchyard or recycling project
missional: reaching out — worked with or through their local community on environmental issues e.g. a litter pick, project with a school or other community group, gaining positive publicity.
