Great News. We now have 37 URC churches in the West Midlands Synod who have signed up with A Rocha. Of these 9 have received a bronze award and 2 a silver award. All these churches were commended by the Moderator at the Synod Meeting at Sutton Coldfield URC on 16 March 2019.
For churches that have not signed up, can I encourage you to do so. The process cannot be more simple. This is all you have to do:
There is just one more suggestion I would make. I would encourage all churches to contact Mark Rudhall at Green Energy Consulting. Mark will come to your church free of charge and will undertake a survey to see how energy efficient the church is. He will then produce a report of recommendations. This will tick boxes on your A Rocha Survey especially if you decide to change your energy suppliers to ones that are more environmentally friendly.
Mark can be contacted through Green Journey on 03330 067 177 - Email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to their web site www.greenjourney.org.
