Thank you for your interest in Eco-Congregation Scotland and we invite your congregation to join us. There are nearly 300 Eco-Congregation churches and organisations in Scotland. To join them you need to register. Registration is easy and gives you access to:
- information through free resource modules, and the newsletter
- support of the through our local networks, and a mentor from another local church.
- recognition of the church’s environmental work through the award scheme (if you choose to do this later).
How to register
To register your church as an eco-congregation please fill out the registration form and post it back to us. You need to agree to support the aims of Eco-Congregation Scotland and get the approval of the decision making body in your congregation (kirk session, vestry etc).
We will write back to you with a copy of our last newsletter, some useful publicity material, and details of a mentor from an existing Eco-Congregation. Your mentor will be able to help you develop the Eco-Congregation activity in your church. We will also send you details of your local Eco-Congregation Network if one exists in your area. Your local network is another place where you can get support and advice.
We recommend that you start working on the Church Check-Up straight away as it will help you prioritise which activities you would like to concentrate on, and is requirement to achieve your first Eco-Congregation Award.
