The Charge Of The Green Brigade

More than 3,500 UK churches are planning to or have already switched their electricity from fossil fuels to renewables as part of our Big Church Switch Campaign!

That’s pretty good timing as today we celebrate ‘World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation’ which marks the beginning of a global, ecumenical time of contemplation during which we’re encouraged to pray and work for the protection of the environment. Check out the #CreationTide hashtag on Twitter.

Around 2,000 of the energy provider switches come from 16 Catholic dioceses which are now running entirely on renewable energy! Other big hitters include the majority of the Salvation Army’s UK sites and a third of Britain’s Quaker Meeting Houses. Another 700 churches from other denominations have individually signed up too.

Is your church green yet or just green with envy? You can do something about it here.
