Care for creation has been a fundamental part of God’s plan for us, right from the start, and at Brighton Road Baptist Church we have demonstrated our commitment to care for the environment by joining the Eco Church accreditation. This accreditation scheme run by A Rocha UK, a Christian charity that engages communities in nature conservation, recognises churches that demonstrate a commitment to sustainability and helping others to understand and achieve it.
At Brighton Road Baptist Church we have successfully achieved the Eco Church Silver Award, and are currently examining how we can further sustainability as a church and a community with a commitment to improvement. As part of this, we are keen to help you understand how our lives affect the environment and ways in which we can make our lives more sustainable in God’s world.
We are also part of the network of Horsham Eco Churches - sharing ideas, encouraging and inspiring other churches on their eco journey. For the latest newsletter click here.
