This is an nationwide project open to all churches, run in partnership by Caring for God's Acre, A Rocha UK, the Church of England Environment Programme, and the Church in Wales.

Churches Count on Nature is a new part of Love Your Burial Ground Week; a well-loved programme which has been running for several years.

During Churches Count on Nature, we are running a special series of webinars on different aspects of land and nature for a church audience.
