The meeting will take place on Monday 11th February 2013 at 8pm in St John’s Church Hamilton. The church is situated on Duke Street (ML3 7DT).
We are very please to have Catherine Falconer from Christian Aid with us. She will give us a presentation of her work. She does great eco-work with children and has lots of useful ideas to share with us.
The report from the Mini-Gathering in Aberdeen held on the 22nd October is now available.
People from 13 congregations came to event, which aimed to inspire and equip congregations for their Eco-Congregation journey. Speakers from Cults Parish Church, Skene Parish Church and Queen’s Cross Parish Church shared their Eco-Congregation plans and achievement. We heartily recommend reading the report if you are looking for inspiration or curious to find out how other congregations carry out their Eco-Congregation journey.
Rev. Ewan Aitken also gave an inspirational sermon prior to the gathering and abseiled off the Forth bridge for charity later the same day.
