We have recently been awarded Eco-Congregation Scotland’s Silver Award for “incorporating care for creation as an integral part of its work and worship”.
The award reflects the work we have done to :
- research energy use and take practical action for example, when our church-lighting reached the end of its lifetime last year, we installed lights which use less than half the energy of the old ones.
- tend our garden in appropriate ways , composting and encouraging butterflies and opening it as a Quiet garden, as a place of renewal for the public.
- support the education of girls particularly in Malawi, by making re-usable period-protection kits ( Days for Girls)
- including Creation in our liturgy.
