Eco-Congregation Scotland is a growing and diverse movement of churches of every size and denomination throughout Scotland. They share the conviction that our society's wholesale exploitation of the natural world is a dishonour to God the Creator; and that to do nothing in the face of environmental destruction is to fail in our duty to worship God and to care for the poor. Since February 2010 Eco-Congregation Scotland has been a registered charity and all participating churches and organisations are invited to become members.

As well as taking action in their own church life, Eco-Congregations are working together in Local Networks and promoting the programme to other churches through talks, workshops, events and materials.

Eco-Congregation Scotland has an ecumenical Board of Directors, details of whom can be found here.
