Next Stirling network meeting

The next meeting of the Stirling Network of Eco-Congregation churches will be on Monday 20th September, 7.30pm at Menstrie Parish Church, Main Street, Menstrie (please use the glass door between the two main buildings when entering).

The main topic for the evening will be “Measuring and Managing the church’s carbon footprint”. John Gourlay and the Green team at Menstrie have kindly offered to share the work they have been carrying out to monitor and reduce their carbon footprint. Adrian Shaw, the Church of Scotland’s Climate Change Officer will also be attending the meeting to give further information and advice.

First event of the new Fife network – Eco-Fair in Cupar!

Three days to go….

The Fife Eco-Fair in Cupar will be held this Saturday, 18th September, between 10am and 12 in the Old Parish Centre, Cupar. As many of you will know, we are in the process of establishing a new network in Fife. At an initial meeting a strong feeling was expressed that churches in the area simply wanted to know more about Eco-Congregation and how they could take action to care better for creation on a whole range of environmental issues. It was therefore decided to hold an event to help explain and involve churches and the wider community. A small group of volunteers from the original meeting nobly volunteered to organise the event and have been working hard ever since.

You can download a flier here (Word Doc, 59kb) which can be printed out and displayed in churches and halls, on noticeboards and in shops.

We hope you have all got the date in your diaries, it promises to be a fun and informative day. Please come and support it – and bring your friends and family!
