Eco-Congregation Scotland was founded 21 years ago as a voluntary organisation, registered as a charity and incorporated in 2010 then became a Scottish Charity Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) in 2018. 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 and action 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 Annual General Meeting and development for members, supporters and volunteers. The 2023 Annual Gathering is planned for Saturday 25th March in Livingston.
Our current staffing is a Manager, an Environmental Chaplain through a Special Category Ministry from the United Reformed Church and the remainder part-time staff: a Programme Co-ordinator supporting the work of our Local Networks and individual churches and a Net Zero Co-ordinator supporting churches' Net Zero commitments, with both supporting wider public engagement in communities. All our staff work from home.
