A Rocha Eco Bronze Award Eco Church Logo

As a Church we have received the A Rocha Eco Bronze Award.  Thanks to our Eco Team and all of you who have been making changes to soften our environmental impact through your actions.  We are now working towards silver, which we hope to achieve very soon.

Wildlife in our Churchyards

Take time to have a wander around our beautiful Churchyards and see what flowers, birds, butterflies, insects you can spot and let us know what you find.  We'd love to hear from you.  Email your comments to

Car ShareCar Shares

As part of our Eco Church initiative, we are hoping to encourage some car shares to church, meetings and volunteering duties.  Please do have a think if there’s anyone you could do a car share with.  Thank You.

Bisley Bees

Bisley Bees

The Bisley Bees have arrived and are hard at work in their hives at the back of Bisley Church.  You are welcome to come and say “Hello” to them but please observe the signs.  They are not naturally aggressive but keep your distance and avoid touching the hive. 

This is part of our Eco Church project and we are very grateful to Liz Noble for donating the hive and to Greg Reeve for providing the bees and his expertise in taking care of them for us.
