As part of our biblical calling to be faithful stewards of God's beautiful creation and considerate stewards of all the resources He has given us, St John's PCC agreed in 2007 to develop an Environmental policy for the church.

As part of this work, an Environmental Working Party was established to audit environmental aspects of the life and work of the church using Eco-congregations church check up.

A teaching series, "Godly and Green", took place in September 2007, culminating in a Green Fair after the final Sunday morning service. In 2008, an Environmental Officer was appointed to take forward the work of the Environmental Working Group.

The Environmental Officer has recently joined the London Churches Environmental Network and also receives regular information from A Rocha, a Christian Environmental Charity.

Environmental Policy

Environmental Action Plan

The environmental action plan is the mechanism by which the policy is implemented. This was developed following an environmental audit of the church and its activities in early 2008. The action plan has been updated since then in September 2008, March 2009 and April 2010.

Summary of progress made towards action plan:
