Green Group

eco-congregation awardThe Green Group was set up by St Edmund’s in 2011 in response to the Diocesan initiative ‘Caring for God’s Earth’.  The group aims to reduce the carbon footprint of St Edmund’s by taking initiatives in worship, at a practical level and by working in partnership with the local community.

Since it started the Green Group has used the Eco-congregation materials as a way of prioritising activities.

In July 2013, after much hard work by members, St Edmund’s was awarded Eco-congregation status.

Then considerable work followed and in 2016 the church gained the Bronze Eco Church Award.  This was presented in March 2017.

The group meets about every 6 weeks and welcomes new members; if you would like to know more please do get in touch.
