ECO-CONGREGATION

Auchterhouse Church is registered as an Eco-Congregation with Eco Congregation Scotland which is an ecumenical movement helping local groups of Christians link environmental issues to their faith, reduce their environmental impact and engage with the community.

The vision of the Eco-Congregation movement is:

·         A Scotland that cares for God’s creation, now and forever more.

 Its mission is:

·         To discover what it means to care for God’s creation In prayer, worship and conversation. 

·         To put that care into action individually, locally, nationally and globally, desiring to live justly in a transformed world. 

·         To commit ourselves to campaigning on urgent threats to the web of life in our vulnerable world.

These may sound daunting statements but in reality we have all taken the first steps by enjoying the lovely countryside around us. As gardeners or farmers we already have a good understanding of the amazing way that God’s creation works throughout the seasons.

What we have done in Auchterhouse is to assess where we are now and what steps we can begin to take to gradually fulfil some of these aspirations. Our planet is very precious to us all, in providing the air, the water and the food we all need to live now and in the future. We are small congregations individually, but working together perhaps we can unite to achieve some of these increasingly important actions.
