Where money and the environment collide! Is there a future for oil and gas and should churches be investing in it?
In 2019 the United Reformed Church agreed to sell its shares in oil and gas companies, the Church of Scotland narrowly decided against divestment at General Assembly and the Scottish Episcopal Church also reviewed its investment policy.
The debate has been passionate and sometimes divisive. We know we have to take oil and gas out of the economy quickly but how do we make a transition to a low carbon economy and what is the role of finance?
Join us to explore these questions; 7pm on Wednesday 18th of September 2019 at The Renfield Centre, 260, Bath Street, Glasgow.

Burghead Green Walk
A Walk and Spiritual Reflection with Moray Network
In the evening, on the longest day of the year, twenty of us set out for a walk along the beach at Burghead. Glorious light and the sound of the sea surrounded us as we stopped on the beach and gathered round for the first of six stops on our journey. At each stop there were prayers, and reflections on the changes to the natural environment as we moved from the barren sand, through the towering dune system into the more fertile forest area, planted to keep the dunes in check many years ago. These reflections were also compared to our Christian Journey, as we grow and mature in a community of faith. At our last stop we sang “Jesus remember me when you come into your kingdom” before returning to Burghead Free church hall for a welcome cup of tea and cake.
A super walk in friendly company. I am looking forward to next year’s walk…. It will be an event not to be missed.
