Go Green environmental care

Bearwood Baptist Church is working towards the Eco-Congregation Award.

Creation Challenge: to connect with church people who are active on environmental matters, through work or general interest and encourage people to join the Network and use it, to make the care of God's creation a central part of local church life and witness.


Professor Sam Berry issues a heartfelt challenge to evangelicals to recognise that mankind's role of steward of creation lies at the heart of Scripture and should be close to the heart of all who are committed to the creator. He then takes a local church perspective and tells St Nicholas Church in Sevenoaks'  story of their journey to becoming an eco-congregation.
