We welcome Philip Blackledge

The Eco-Congregation Scotland board welcomes Pip Blackledge as its newest Director.


I am a priest in the Scottish Episcopal church, currently working at Christ Church in Morningside. I have a role in the diocese for Eco-Congregation and youth and children, two areas which are complimentary in terms of the young people’s desire to bring a larger prominence to ecological matters.

I have been involved in writing the liturgy for the Scottish Episcopal Church’s Creationtide Eucharist, and have done some ecumenical work in terms of liturgical resources for Creationtide. In my previous church in Linlithgow, I managed to run my car on biodiesel made in my garage from used chip fat from the chippie next door, converting an old hot water tank into a reactor. Somehow nothing blew up.

When not involved in things churchy or ecological, my interests are playing the piano, singing early church music, and playing with our recently adopted five year old son.
