Becoming an Eco Church


Follow our progress as St John's Church in Kingston Park, Newcastle upon Tyne works to become a greener, more sustainable church.


“But ask the animals and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky and they will tell you; or speak to the earth and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind”.

Job 12:7-10
