The Induction of the Rev. Dr. David Pickering as Moderator of the National Synod of Scotland of the United Reformed Church took place in Giffnock on Saturday 16th of July.
In his address Dr. Pickering mentioned his strong association with Eco-Congregation in his former capacity in Leeds. David was actually one of the founders of Eco-Congregation in England and Wales and worked closely with Eco-Congregation Scotland on our original launch and on subsequent projects, inclusing our environmental chaplaincy (funded by the United Reformed Church).
Eco-Congregation Scotland was represented by trustee John Seenan who is pictured welcoming David to Scotland on our behalf.
The retiring collection from the service was also donated to Eco-Congregation Scotland. Thank you to everyone at the National Synod of Scotland for inviting us to take part and for your generosity.
