To keep global warming below 2 degrees, we need action locally as well as globally.
Climate change is too important to be a party political issue. We must make the planet safer for future generations and for all life on earth - animal, plant and human.
Eco Church is A Rocha UK’s award scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth. WinACC will do all we can to support churches in Winchester District. We can supply materials, quizzes, games for community events, ideas, speakers - just get in touch.
