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.
During its recent visit to Selkirk, our climate justice baton visited 3 churches, 7 schools and some community groups. There were also two great articles in the local paper.
Organisations who received the baton included: Selkirk United Reformed Church, Ashkirk Parish Church, Thornfield House Care Home, all the Primary Schools in the town and valleys, the Wednesday Prayer Group, Selkirk High School, Brownies and Guides as well as Coffee Plus. On the Friday, it was in the care of four of the Men’s Group as they cycled over the St Boswells to hand the baton onto the church there.
It was great to see the interest it created in Climate Justice and the decisions to be made at COP21 in Paris in December.
