Borderlands Rural Chaplaincy has been supporting Hereford Diocese's bid to become an Eco Diocese. The launch was held in St James Church in Hereford on 21st September. Speakers included the Bishop of Hereford and Helen Stephens (pictured) from the organisation A Rocha, a Christian environmental charity which has been promoting faith-based responses to climate change and environmental issues. One of the BRC Chaplains, Nick Read, led a workshop on the Theology of Climate Change. It was suggested that there could be some friendly rivalry developing with our Methodist colleagues, whose local Synod has just declared its intent to become an Eco District (the Methodist equivalent of Eco Diocese). For further details the A Rocha website is at https://arocha.org.uk/
