Welcome to Monifieth Parish Church, who registered as 254th eco-congregation!
Creation Time 2010 will be between 1 September and 4 October, to inspire the protection of God’s creation and the promotion of sustainable lifestyles. The theme this year is Creation Flourishing – A time for Celebration and Care, linking into the United Nations International Year of Biodiversity.
CTBI (Churches Together in Britain and Irland) are providing an excellent set of resources on their website: www.ctbi.org.uk/creationtime. Resources for Creation Time 2010 include suggestions to help churches, groups and individuals to focus on a creation theme at this time of the year, either on one occasion or over the 5 weeks, sermon notes based on the Lectionary readings for the 5 Sundays, prayers and resources for children’s groups and schools. The material is all available as free downloads.
Please help to advertise Creation Time 2010 by downloading the poster here (pdf, 584kb) and displaying it in your church.
Welcome to Holy Trinity Church Elgin, 253rd eco-congregation!
Cults Parish Church achieved their first Eco-Congregation Award!
Congratulations to Cults Parish Church!
The award assessors particularly commended the congregation for the following:
- The very active support shown for Fairtrade, including their own church stall, the Fair Trade Fashion show and especially the grant support they provide to other churches wishing to set up their own stalls.
- The wide variety of recycling initiatives in the church and the lobbying that they have carried out to try to get a food waste collection established in Cults.
- The superbly maintained grounds which provide so many wildlife habitats.
- The outreach work that is achieved through the work at “the Hub”.
We wish the church all the best for their future work!
