David Bradwell of Scottish Faiths Action for Refugees will bring us up to date on the current crisis and give suggestions of what we can do to help, as churches and as individuals.
The 2015 Local Networks Seminar took place in Dunblane on Saturday 26th September. This year the main themes discussed at the Seminar have been used to propose an exciting new way of providing web-based resources, which can be downloaded and printed out to encourage more participation in our congregations.
After considering what other resources are available, the ECS Board now plans to invite individuals / congregations / networks, with the relevant experience and expertise, to contribute to developing and writing the new resources.
Local Networks Seminar Report 2015 also lists a whole host of topics and speakers from networks all around the country (see Appendix 3). If you are not already involved in a network, take a look and see what you might be missing! Everyone is welcome at network meetings – you don’t have to be from a registered congregation. Full information about your local network can be found here.

This is a reminder to let you know that the Angus and Dundee network meeting is taking place this Thursday. If you’re hoping to attend, the topic will be: Should the Church be Investing in Fossil Fuel Companies?
Churches are being asked to look at their investments with fresh eyes because of growing concerns about the impact of fossil fuel companies on the earth’s climate. Adrian Shaw, the Church of Scotland’s Climate Change Officer will lead a talk and discussion to examine this complex and challenging subject. What should the Church of Scotland and other Scottish denominations do?
Where and when?
7.30 – 9.00pm on Thursday the 8th of October 2015 at Glasite Hall, St Andrew’s Church, King Street Dundee DD1 2JB.
