Inverkip Parish Church wins Scottish Green Apple Award

Congratulations to the Eco Group at Inverkip Parish Church who have followed up achieving their first Eco-Congregation Award and being highly commended in the Church Times Green Awards with a Scottish Green Apple Award.

The congregation competed against more than 500 other nominations and will attend an award ceremony in Glasgow in March 2018 to hear if they have won gold, silver or bronze. The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, and communities. The awards are organised by The Green Organisation and are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) and other independent bodies.

Convenor of the church Eco group, Hilary Cameron, said

‘I am delighted our work has been recognised in this way. We are a small, but committed and hardworking group and I want to thank everyone for their efforts. We have received fantastic support from groups like the Sunday School, Youth Club and Property Group as we continue to highlight the importance of caring for God’s Creation and encouraging others to make changes to their habits and lifestyle’.
