The Salvation Army is partnering with the Church of England Environment Programme, the Methodist Church and Eco-Congregation Scotland to organise the 2024 Church Times Green Church awards.

The awards celebrate the efforts of individuals and congregations to offset the damage being done to the Earth, and to set good examples that inspire others to follow suit.

The awards are open to church groups and church schools of any denomination. Partner organisations include A Rocha UK, Inspired Efficiency, Ecology Building Society and The Conservation Foundation.

There are seven award categories: 

  • Green building: For an existing building that has reduced its carbon footprint or strengthened its climate resilience, or a new building built to high environmental standards
  • Land and nature: For projects creating space for wildlife and encouraging biodiversity
  • Congregation and community action: For taking a leading role in environmental action that benefits the community
  • Green champion: For an individual who has made a significant difference
  • Training and education: For projects promoting environmental understanding
  • Green health: For projects connecting faith, nature and health
  • Action on a shoestring: For projects achieving a great deal with a little

Each category has a £1,000 prize.

The panel of judges will be looking for projects that have made a positive change in the past two years in buildings, outdoors and in the community. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony during Creationtide in the autumn.

Groups can enter in one or more categories. The deadline for entries is 30 June. To nominate a project, group or person, please complete the nomination form.
