Eco-Congregation Scotland was founded in 2000 as a voluntary organisation, registered as a charity in 2010 and became a SCIO in 2018. We have grown to become the largest movement of community-based environment groups in Scotland with around 450 registered congregations. As an ecumenical charity we work with local churches of all denominations in addressing climate change.
We are now recognised as an international leader in faith action for the environment. We challenge church members and congregations to promote care for creation through worship, campaigning and practical action to tackle climate change in their own lives, their churches and local communities, addressing climate justice here and around the world.
There are up to 12 Trustees of the Board of the Charity, which normally meets 4 times a year, with an Annual Gathering in the Spring, covering the AGM and development for members. The 2019 Annual Gathering takes place on Saturday 30th March in Dundee’s Gate Church.
Our current staffing is a Manager, an Environmental Chaplain and the remainder part-time staff: a Projects Officer and Membership & Office Administrator who are based in our Edinburgh office, along with two Programme Coordinators who work from home and support our local networks across Scotland. We also work closely in partnership with the Church of Scotland’s Climate Change Officer, sharing office space in Edinburgh.
