Second award for Skene Parish Church!

Skene Parish Church achieved their second Eco-Congregation Award!

The assessors were particularly impressed by:

  • The innovative scheme to recycle first aid kits from maritime life boats, which has the potential to be replicated in other geographical areas. The church has access to all the first aid kits from Aberdeen but other ports may be able to make links with similar churches.
  • The “Dig for Creation” potato project and the way in which this was used both practically and educationally by involving the congregation with the planting and explaining the project’s merits to the local community.
  • The recycling project which is thorough and inspirational.
  • The positive way the eco-group functions, bringing other individuals and groups in.
