Eco Church at St Leonard’s

 

Welcome to our Eco Church page!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

We have a vision to share love for our neighbours and the environment. We believe the climate is in crisis and have a commitment to find ways of caring for all creation. Join us as we journey together to create kinder, greener, more sustainable futures in our homes, community and globally. We will be sharing ideas and acting to reduce the effects of climate change, joining with others to meet the challenge of walking lightly in the world.

For the first 3 years of the project The Diocese of Southwark supported us in the funding of a designated Eco Church lead, Ali Angus. Now that the funding has come to an end we have said farewell to Ali and we are building on the great start we have made under her leadership and we are looking ahead to how we can keep striving to achieve our vision to be an Eco Church into the future. We were delighted to have been awarded an Eco Church Silver Award this year, our church yard was awarded ‘silver’ in the ‘Lambeth in bloom’ awards as well !
