Congratulations to St John’s Church Edinburgh on gaining their second Eco-Congregation Award!
The assessors were very impressed with the work displayed by the congregation. They particularly commended the congregation for the following:
- The Earth Be Glad project that they have developed is of national importance and reflects the work that they and other members of the congregation have invested in the project. By drawing down Climate Challenge Funds to support the project they have demonstrated vision and determination that has resulted in a growing proportion of the congregation becoming involved;
- The work of the gardening group that have made very good progress in managing the grounds of the Church and making it both more attractive and increasing biodiversity;
- The development of worship materials, including the special liturgy for Creation Time and the commitment of the clergy at St. John’s to become involved in and support the work.
