Event in Dumfries & Galloway: The Environment – A Christian Imperative?

On Wednesday 10th September, 7.30 – 9pm the Rev Trevor Jamison, Environmental Chaplain for Eco-Congregation Scotland, will be speaking on “The Environment: A Christian Imperative”.  This event will be held at Dumfries Northwest Church, Lochside Road, Dumfries DG2 0DZ.

 Trevor will be talking about how care for creation can help churches to become more involved with their community and with the wider world. At a time when all churches are facing huge challenges and pressures with rising costs and shrinking congregations, is environmental concern a luxury we cannot afford? Or might it just be part of the solution?  The meeting will pose the challenge: “Can caring for creation help care for the Church?”

 Trevor will speak for about 40 minutes followed by questions and discussion. The evening will finish by 9.00 pm with a cup of tea.

We are aiming to use this meeting to engage with more congregations in the area. The meeting is open to everyone and could be of particular interest to Ministers, Pastors, Priests, Session Clerks, Vestry Secretaries, laity with responsibilities for Mission and Chairs of Boards.
