Inspiring Eco-Congregation work in Fairlie Parish Church

The recent third award winners are helping the Organic Growers  to increase the bio-diversity of the planting around their garden and report that Largs Cubs, most of whom come from Fairlie, have applied to have two beds at the Organic Growers.

For further information on this amazing local project see http://www.organicgrowersfairlie.co.uk/.

The church will be hosting a Second-hand Book Stall at the Fairlie Gala on the 17th of August, in aid of Book Aid.

Third Eco-Congregation Award to Fairlie Parish Church

Fairlie Parish Church has received their Third Eco-Congregation Award. Congratulations!
December 19th 2011

We would like to specially highlight:
– Achieving a lot with a small team, whilst also facing the difficult situation of having a vacant ministerial position.
– Embedding the environmental message within all the work of the church, including the policies of using Fair Trade produce in the café and even the flowers on a Sunday.
– The use of both creative and fun ideas, including the swishing party, which the Sunday School then used to start an initiative donating to the charity shops.
– Supporting local initiatives in Fairlie, concerns within Ayrshire and for wider global issues.
