Congregational mergers and linkages.

Due to the number of mergers and linkages which have taken place over the past few years we have had to revise the figures for the number of eco-congregations. In doing this we have developed the following policy:

  1. When an eco-congregation merges with another church (whether they are an eco-congregation or not) the congregation resulting from the merger can remain as a single eco-congregation.
  2. Two or more linked congregations can register separately as eco-congregations or join Eco-Congregation Scotland as separate members.
  3. In all cases of new mergers and linkages the congregations will need to contact the manager of Eco-Congregation with any change of congregation name and updated contact details.

We hope this makes sense and that it helps people know what to do if they are part of a merger or linkage.
