Eco Congregation

The Church of Scotland has a strong concern for Christian stewardship of God’s beautiful world. To this end, it has created an Eco Congregation scheme, which has almost 300 members.

Recently St Andrew’s has decided to take part and has set up a small committee, the Ecogroup, which is applying to register the church as an eco congregation. We hope to do this in conjunction with our twinned church in Adentan. We want the goal of ‘protection of the environment’ integrated into the life of St Andrew’s, be it in Christian education, in worship, in awareness raising in the congregation at large, and in trying to have energy saving and less waste in the buildings. After registration we shall continue to implement our plans to improve the ecological footprint of St Andrew’s.
