The Big Church Switch, a Tearfund and Christian Aid initiative, has won the energy category in the PEA Awards (People, Environment, Achievement).
The campaign was launched in February to inspire churches to switch to green energy by offering advice, support and easier access to green energy companies.
Around 700 churches moved to more environmentally friendly energy consumption as a result of the scheme.
Christian Aid Campaign Strategy Lead, Tim Gee, said: "Informed by our witness against global injustice, churches are demonstrating the big shift that governments and investors must urgently make: from outdated fossil fuels to clean renewable electricity.
"I hope the project will inspire people from every walk of life to find a way to play a part in switching off fossil fuels, too."
The PEA Awards are the UK's leading sustainability awards.
They honour individuals and teams behind products, services and businesses that help the planet.
A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
