St John’s cares about our environment. We all share a responsibility to care for God’s world, and we can demonstrate this in our worship and teaching, how we care for our buildings and land and how we engage with the local community.

We encourage sustainable travel, shopping and living where possible. We were awarded a Bronze Eco Church Award in 2023.

Current/recent initiatives include:

  • Lent 2022 project to encourage everyone to take up/give up something to help the environment
  • A review of waste and recycling in the church and Goose Green Centre
  • Sermon series on caring for the planet (autumn 2021)
  • Regular articles on eco initiatives in our parish magazine, The Gander

Further projects will be announced on this page soon!
