There are a couple of Fife Pilgrim Way tree planting events at Lochore Meadows on 15 & 16 March. If you are interested in taking part, please see:
With a number new congregations registering in the west and south of Fife, we are looking to establish a network in that area, stretching from west of Dunfermline right along the Firth of Forth to Leven, and inland to Glenrothes, including places like Rosyth, Inverkeithing, Kirkcaldy, Cowdenbeath, Lochgelly and Markinch, among others.
An initial double event will take place on Thursday March 30th, involving a visit to the Rosyth EATS project at 5.30pm followed by a meeting in St Peter in Chains church hall, Inverkeithing, at 7.30pm. Anyone interested is welcome to come to either or both of these events. Please spread the word, and forward the attached poster to all contacts in the area.

The 2015 Local Networks Seminar took place in Dunblane on Saturday 26th September. This year the main themes discussed at the Seminar have been used to propose an exciting new way of providing web-based resources, which can be downloaded and printed out to encourage more participation in our congregations.
After considering what other resources are available, the ECS Board now plans to invite individuals / congregations / networks, with the relevant experience and expertise, to contribute to developing and writing the new resources.
Local Networks Seminar Report 2015 also lists a whole host of topics and speakers from networks all around the country (see Appendix 3). If you are not already involved in a network, take a look and see what you might be missing! Everyone is welcome at network meetings – you don’t have to be from a registered congregation. Full information about your local network can be found here.Continue reading →
