1st award for Bridge of Allan Parish Church

Congratulations to Bridge of Allan Parish Church for gaining their first Eco-Congregation Award in February 2010!
Bridge of Allan Parish Church gained their first Eco-Congregation Award in February 2010.
The award assessors were very impressed by the evidence of past and present work of the congregation in environmental areas, such as the installation of a ground source heating system, solar thermal heating and the programme of assessing and insulating/ draught-proofing other church buildings and rooms. The research work and efforts put into obtaining the necessary funding for such an innovative project have involved a great deal of work. Initial scepticism about the idea was overcome by the committee sharing information and communication with the remainder of the congregation, to the extent that the church can claim to be a model for other churches – and building owners – to follow.
We also would like to congratulate the congregation on the enthusiasm and commitment that the committee and congregation has shown for putting their plans into action!
