Greenbank Eco-Group

The Greenbank Eco-Group evolved, starting as a Board group focused on energy saving, then developing a wider agenda with more emphasis on Christian Stewardship of the Planet. Seeking to play a part in the fight against climate change the group now has several strands :

  • Facebook Group providing a neighbourhood  forum on Green Issues
  • Providing an article from one the group in every issue of Connections
  • Greening the front of the church
  • Ethical procurement - Fairtrade consumables, flowers, sustainable products etc, raw materials for handyman
  • Church building improvements to meet ethical standards e.g. ensuring the new boiler can be converted to burning Hydrogen, insulation of buildings
