Recommended Reading: British Methodists Promote "Eco Churches" and "Eco Districts"
The Methodist Church in Britain has announced a program to certify "eco churches" and "eco circuits and eco districts." This certification program encourages churches, circuits, and districts to take seriously the effort to reduce their environmental impact by awarding recognition for those church entities making significant progress in this regard. While the certification is only available to churches in the UK, the survey designed to help guide churches in achieving certification is useful everywhere. The survey examines five areas of creation care work: worship and teaching, buildings, land, community and global, and lifestyle. For congregations throughout the world looking to care for creation in the stewardship of the built environment, this resource is a useful one.
