A new look for our award application forms!

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!


New events calendar for Eco-Congregation Scotland!

We now have an online calendar to easily find events that eco-congregations are hosting around the country. Network meetings, our Environmental Chaplain Rev Trevor Jamison’s worship-leading and talk sessions, as well as events such as our Annual Gathering and supported events such as Fast for the Climate will all be included.

Please do let us know if you have any events coming up that you would like us to add to our calendar!

The report and summary report from the Local Networks Seminar held on 6th September are now available to download. You can access them here:

Write an article for our newsletter.

We would be interested in publishing articles from registered eco-congregations on our web site news page and in our monthly newsletter. So, if your congregation has done anything interesting recently why not write this up and send it to ?

We will put the article on our news page, local network page and consider it for inclusion in our newsletter.
