Being the church on Epsom Common, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, we are very aware that’s God message of Good News in Jesus Christ is a message for all creation. “Living well” means living well with, and for, our fellow creatures.
In the autumn of 2018 we became an Eco Church, which means that we have committed to living, as well as we can, in harmony with God’s creation. In 2019 we achieved the Bronze Eco Church award and are well on our way towards attaining Silver by the end of 2020.
We are so blessed to be both the church on the common and, for many visitors, the gateway to the common and we want to share that blessing as we do our bit as part of an Eco Diocese to avert what the government and diocese now recognise as a climate emergency.
Christ Church Environmental Group helps to act as a catalyst and inspiration for us as we deepen our journey as an Eco Church and work towards underpinning all that we do with care for God’s creation.
Our meetings are very informal, open to everybody and happen roughly every other month after Sunday worship. Your contribution might simply be a prayerful presence; you may have particular gifts and interests to offer; or you may just be interested in seeing how you can help out – in every case, you will be very welcome to join in.
