Membership

All registered eco-congregations in Scotland are eligible to apply for membership. Members get priority access to our events and training, can vote at our AGM and can participate in our Awards scheme. 

 

Membership is free for all churches with an income under £50,000, to ensure that small churches are able to participate fully. We would, however, encourage everyone to donate what they feel they can afford, so that we can continue to support local churches, and to be a strong Christian voice in the national debate about Scotland’s role in climate action.

Membership fees cover 12 months of membership.
