Eco-Congregation is calling on churches to show leadership
in the wake of the IPCC report! See here for details.
Our vision is to see churches throughout Ireland adopt an eco approach to worship, lifestyle, property and finance management, community outreach and contact with the developing world.
We hope you and your church will find this site a practical help in making the link between the environment and the Christian faith. Our Resources are full of ideas to help you do this!

If your church has been working consistently on environmental issues for two years or more, you might like to apply for an Eco Award. If so, all you need to do is send an A4 page outlining your eco activities to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ECI has made awards to the following churches - Clonakilty Methodist (2008 & 2013), Whitechurch Church of Ireland (2011), Dundrum Methodist (2011), Fitzroy Presbyterian (2011), Rathfarnham Quakers (2011), Rathfarnham Church of Ireland (2012), Oblate parishes of Inchicore (2012) and Kilbride Presbyterian (2013). Diocesan awards have been presented to the Catholic Diocese of Kerry (2012) and the Church of Ireland Diocese of Cashel and Ossory (2013).
‘The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
The world, and all who live in it’
