Energy-saving De Beauvoir and Finsbury Park churches earn praise
Divine double as churches cut carbon footprint.
St John the Evangelist Church and St Peter De Beauvoir Church were praised at a reception held last week to showcase work relating to the Diocese of London’s Environmental Challenge campaign.
St John the Evangelist Church, Queens Drive, Finsbury Park, drew praise for a project to install solar panels on the roof of their church building which have helped achieve cuts in carbon from electricity of 50 per cent.
St Peter De Beauvoir Church, in De Beauvoir Road, has emerged as the Diocese’s first grade A church in managing energy use and carbon emissions.
Julia Porter-Pryce, the Rector of St Peter’s as well as Area Dean of Hackney, said: “The initiatives demonstrate that cutting our carbon footprints needn’t be expensive or complicated.”
The reception, which was held in St Paul’s Church, Shadwell, Tower Hamlets, highlighted the campaign’s aims to cut the carbon footprint of London churches.
