Eco church

St Stephen’s belongs to the national Eco Church network which encourages environmentally friendly practice and care of Creation across all our church activities.

We are currently working towards our Bronze award. We include Creation care themes in our worship especially during creation season from September to St Francis’ day and our Harvest Festival in October.

As part of our care for Creation, we’re developing St Stephen’s green space. We already have some fruit trees growing, a lavender hedge developing and a wild hedge.

We hope to create further areas for wild flowers and fruit.In future we will he encouraging our members and the wider community to make simple changes in their lifestyle that can benefit our local environment as well as our whole planet.
