About our Annual Gathering
This December leaders from around the world will meet in Paris to try and reach an international agreement on climate change. Come along to our Annual Gathering to find our what the Scottish government and voluntary organisations are doing to put pressure on world leaders for an agreement on climate change, and how to make your voice head. We will also have practical workshops on making your congregations more climate-friendly.
The next network meeting will be on Wednesday 11th February, 7.30 – 9pm at Fairlie Parish Church, Main Road, Fairlie, KA29 0AD.
Rev Trevor Jamison, Environmental Chaplain to Eco-Congregation Scotland, will lead a talk and conversation entitled “For God so Loved the Cosmos”.
Trevor’s role is to help churches, congregations and parishes understand the spiritual and theological reasons why we should care for creation. This meeting will be about how recognising that God is the creator of the universe, not just the creator of humankind, affects our understanding, faith and actions.
Everyone is very welcome!

We are pleased to announce that we have redesigned our Eco-Congregation award application forms to help make the award application and assessment process easier for congregations. There are now three different award application forms depending on which award your congregation is applying for, and clearer guidelines throughout the form to make the process as smooth as possible.
Don’t forget, if you have any queries or need assistance applying for the award, please just get in touch.
We now have 117 award-winning congregations with more joining their numbers all the time – why not join them!
We are pleased to announce that our newest Eco-Congregation is Newtown Wallacetown Church of Scotland, Ayr. We now have 321 Eco-Congregations across Scotland, with more joining and gaining awards all the time. Find out how to join them here.
