Moray Network meeting: Energy Use in Church Buildings

The next meeting of the Moray network will take place on Tuesday 3rd June at 7.30pm at Spynie Kirk, by Elgin (IV30 8XJ). The topic is Energy Use in Church Buildings.

“Most of our church buildings were never designed to conserve energy. What can we do to save energy and reduce fuel costs? Anne Thomas from Hilton Parish Church, Inverness, explains how they have used available grants to improve insulation, install solar panels and other energy saving measures to reduce their carbon footprint and save money in their church buildings.”

All are very welcome.

2013 Local Networks Seminar

The 2013 Local Networks Seminar took place on 7th September in Dunblane Cathedral Halls.  The Seminar is organised to provide  an opportunity for networking between the networks, to provide ideas for action and for networks to give feedback to ECS.  This year 14 of our 17 networks were represented and they participated in discussions ranging from “Ways of Understanding the Human Role in Creation” to looking at issues such as plastic recycling, recruitment and personal lifestyles.  Swap Sessions on ideas for network activities were also a main feature of the day.

A full report of the Seminar can be downloaded here.
