Leading organisations in the Christian environmental movement have pulled together in support of a new award to acknowledge and encourage the outstanding environmental work already being undertaken by churches and their congregations across the UK.
Sponsors of The Church Times Green Awards 2007 include Operation Noah/Christian Ecology Link, A Rocha UK, Eco-congregation, Tearfund, Christian Aid and Shrinking the Footprint.
Awards will highlight the work of churches in a variety of green areas, including biodiversity, campaigning to cut the carbon, celebrating creation, changing lifestyles and energy-saving in church buildings.
Church Times launched the Green Awards to celebrate the progress being made by churches as they continue their transformation to become environmentally friendly role models.
