Eco Congregation Scotland Annual Gathering

On Saturday in Bridge of Allan the Eco Congregation Scotland movement held its annual gathering. This year is the 10th birthday of Eco Congregations, which is one of the fastest growing community-based environmental initiatives in the country.

Around a hundred people from across Scotland and representing a wide variety of Christian traditions met and shared in fellowship and worship.

As a symbolic act of the growing sign of the movement branching out throughout churches across Scotland, everyone present was given a small tree sapling with the invitation to plant it in a church yard or community garden. The trees, all native Scottish species, will then become a physical symbol of growth and our concern for caring for the earth in neighbourhoods all over the country.

If your church is not already part of Eco Congregation Scotland, you can find out more on their website or keep up to date by following their blog.
