ECO Church

Starting our ECO Church Journey

ECO Church

Bristol Diocese declared a Climate Emergency in 2020. To start the journey of helping the church, the community and beyond to respond to the global threat, Gastard has resolved to become an ECO Church.

Earth Hour

We are asking Gastard parish residents to observe Earth Hour on March 28th. Lights off for 1 hour at 8:30pm in support of action on climate change and ecological damage. Add your voice: EarthHour.org
