Double bronze for green Leeds parish

One of our Leeds area parishes has shown its green credentials by achieving a double bronze.
The church of St Mary Magdalene East Keswick, in the parish of Bardsey, has recently achieved its A Rocha Bronze Eco Church award, joining the other church in the parish, All Hallows Bardsey.
To achieve the award, the church had to hit milestones in a number of areas, including a focus on God’s creation in their worship, making their building more eco-friendly, caring for their church land, engaging with their local community and looking at the lifestyles of congregation members.
The Revd Angela Hannafin, Vicar of the parish, said: “Our Bronze Eco Award for St Mary Magdalene represents a milestone on our journey as a parish. 
“We now have Bronze status in both of our two churches, which is so encouraging.  
“We will continue to work hard to promote Environmental concerns in our local villages, and seek to draw in as much community support as we can.”
