Here at Christ Church Toxteth Park we are committed to preserving and protecting the natural environment that God has entrusted to us as a both a church and as a community.
As part of this commitment we are in the process of applying for a Gold Award with Eco Church. Eco Church is an award scheme, set up by A Rocha UK, for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s Earth.
As part of Christ Church Toxteth Park’s commitment to preserving God’s planet we calculate our carbon footprint each year and offset it through verified carbon reduction policies. In 2019 we are proud to be doing by planting trees in the NW of England through Tree Appeal.
For members of the church who want to calculate their own carbon footprint and find ways to reduce and offset it, we recommend this excellent resource from eco Congregation Scotland. However, it is important to realise that not everyone is in a position where such offsetting is possible, and we are working hard as a church to ensure that all needs and voices are accommodated as we work together to care for God’s Earth.
We also want to create a space in which all of our congregation can help to celebrate and protect our natural environment, and are keen to hear from all voices within our community on what steps we can be taking to achieve this. If you have a suggestion or a question then please get in touch and let us know what we can do to help.
