March 2015 – eco-congregation launch
To launch our congregation as an Eco-Congregation, the Peace and Justice Group, supported by Selkirk Film Club will be showing the climate change film The Age of Stupid on March 13th in the County Hotel. All are encouraged to come along and see this thought-provoking film.
The Eco-Congregation Group has carried out an environmental check-up of the church as it is at present and will shortly be planning the work ahead to apply for the first of three awards which are available.
The purpose of this work is to engage with the church leaders, organisations and congregation to promote our caring for God’s creation and to do all we can do to be good stewards of the world entrusted to us.
Much has already been done in the “Thinking Green, Acting Green” campaign and we seek to continue and build on this as we move forward together
