Eco church award - Central Methodist Church, Helston
Members of Central Methodist Church, Helston have been presented with a bronze award by the Eco Church Scheme. They are Cornwall’s second church to achieve the national award.
The church switched to an eco-energy provider, installed a water meter, increased recycling facilities and installed LED, low energy light bulbs were possible. An eco-column in the church magazine was introduced and members took part in a community beach clean. The Revd Andrew Hill, who led the service with the help of the church's eco team, said: "There has been a lot of interest and involvement from all ages within the church."
The scheme aims to encourage churches, their members and the wider community to enjoy and care for the natural world. Central Methodist Church, Helston is now working towards its silver award.
