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”.
Our five main Target Areas:
How we aim to lower our energy consumption and reducing our Carbon Footprint
Reduce - Recycle - Re-use
How we aim to reduce our water use and waste ending up in landfill
Encouraging wildlife and creating habitats to increase biodiversity around the church grounds
Identifying and raising awareness of producers and sellers of local organic, animal-friendly and fairtrade foods.
