Due to the number of mergers and linkages which have taken place over the past few years we have had to revise the figures for the number of eco-congregations. In doing this we have developed the following policy:
- When an eco-congregation merges with another church (whether they are an eco-congregation or not) the congregation resulting from the merger can remain as a single eco-congregation.
- Two or more linked congregations can register separately as eco-congregations or join Eco-Congregation Scotland as separate members.
- In all cases of new mergers and linkages the congregations will need to contact the manager of Eco-Congregation with any change of congregation name and updated contact details.
We hope this makes sense and that it helps people know what to do if they are part of a merger or linkage.
Welcome to St Andrew’s Church of Scotland Bo’ness, our newest eco-congregation!
