Action in Your Congregation: Becoming and Eco-Congregation.

Explore how to enthuse and equip your church to weave environmental issues into its life and mission in an enjoyable and stimulating way by becoming an Eco-Congregation (and joining almost 200 other Scottish Eco-Congregations). With Margaret Warnock.

Eco-Congregation Scotland enables your church to do something about climate change. Nearly 200 Scottish churches from nine denominations have already registered as Eco-Congregations and are taking action. They are using the Eco-Congregation programme to help them understand and address environmental issues within the context of their faith. Come and find out how the programme works, what it offers your church and how being an Eco-Congregation has already enriched the life and mission of other churches. The need for action on climate change is urgent. This workshop will be participative and interactive. We aim to send you back to your congregation prepared to "hit the ground running" with the Eco-Congregation programme!

Margarer Warnock is Co-ordinator of Eco-Congregation Scotland.
