Circuit Environment Policy News

Shropshire and Marches Methodist Circuit is to form an Environment Policy. Plans to pursue the development of a Circuit-wide policy were briefly discussed at a recent Circuit meeting where addressing members, Circuit Superintendent Revd. Richard Hall called for those interested in setting up an Environment Group to become aligned and work towards agreeing on a strategy. Revd. Hall said that despite a number of church members remaining unconvinced of the threats posed by the impact of mankind's mismanagement of the planet's resources, urgently placing climate change among the priorities on the Circuit agenda would be favourably met. Currently, three churches in the Circuit, Belle Vue, Clun and Church Stretton have achieved Eco-Church status.
