The Riding Lights Theatre Company will be touring a new show about Climate Change from a Christian perspective between September and November this year (see details below).
So far only two churches in Scotland have shown an interest, but if there is sufficient demand they might put on another week touring Scotland – from 16th November.
If you are interested please contact them via their web site www.ridinglights.org.

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.

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 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!
