Duffus, Spynie and Hopeman church have received their first Eco-Congregation award – congratulations! The assessors were very impressed with the standard of environmental care and engagement in all three of the linked churches.
We now have 116 churches who have at least one Eco-Congregation Award!
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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org ?
We will put the article on our news page, local network page and consider it for inclusion in our newsletter.
