Summary of the findings of St Peter’s environmental audit

The environmental audit or check up was undertaken in 2007 using the Eco-congregation model which comprises 12 parts:

  • Life and mission of the church
  • Worship
  • Theology
  • Children’s work
  • Youth work
  • All-age and adult education
  • Church property
  • Church management
  • Church land
  • Personal lifestyle
  • Community outreach
  • Overseas concerns

The audit concluded that St Peter’s already working in the interests of the environment in many ways but that were also obvious ways in which this was not yet happening where opportunities had not yet been taken.

Are you thinking of trading in your SUV for a hybrid?

Do you routinely use reusable shopping bags?

Do you use recycled paper in your printer?

Are you trying to avoid purchasing products encased in large amounts of packaging?

Have you switched to low energy light bulbs and a green energy supplier?

Are you routinely sorting your waste into recycling containers of different kinds?

Do you sometimes cycle or walk rather than driving?

Do you know the arguments for and against carbon offsetting?

Are you considering offsetting the carbon emission consequences of your next flight?

Do you see the link between religion and environmentalism?

If any of these sort of issues interest you, why not join us in helping to move the green community initiative forward ?  You can join by contacting either Dennis Parker (denjpark@btinternet.com) or Sally Martin (martins3632@btinternet.com) and/or by just coming along at any time to one of the evening meetings organised in 2009 to take the initiative forward.  

The dates and other details of these meetings are given above.  You can commit yourself to just as little or as much as you want.  You can just give your view if you wish, or you can help organise some of the actions which we are planning to take forward in 2009 and beyond, and you can help shape these initiatives at the same time.  If you have no experience of environmental issues, then it does not matter.  However, if you have experience of them, come along and let us learn from your experience.
