Milford talks about Eco Church

On Sunday 21st January 2024, the church Stewards led the morning service and

adopted the theme of "Caring for God's world"

There were Bible readings from Genesis Chapter 1 and Psalm 8 as well as a poem

"Nature" by James Greene. Videos of "Nature shines with beauty", "Everywhere
around me" and "If the fields are parched" all fitted in with the theme.

There were two reflections.
Firstly, upon what we have done to God's world when issues such as food waste in the UK, global climate change and nature conservation were considered.
We also gave thought to God's covenant with creation through Noah as expressed through the sight of the rainbow. Creation care is integral to the Gospel. As followers of Jesus, we are called to live in His world and act as stewards of it for the benefit of all not just humankind.

Second reflection, was all about Eco Church. An explanation was given of the 5key areas of the Church life upon which each church is rated:

  • Worship and teaching
  • Management of Church buildings
  • Management of Church land
  • Community and global engagement
  • Lifestyle

Milford has signed up to the Eco Church community and is reviewing what it has already done and what more it can do to make the world a better place.

After the service , over a cup of coffee, the congregation were encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas on what initiatives we might introduce in the coming months.
