Eco-Congregation

Eco-Congregation is an ecumenical programme which supports churches in linking environmental issues to their Christian faith and responding with action in the church and community.

  • Balfron Church registered as an Eco-Congregation in December 2005. We gained our first award in June 2007. 

  • Early efforts concentrated on greening our lifestyles as individuals and as a church.

  • Most of the Cell Groups followed at least one series of bible studies from Eco-Congregation’s Module 6.

  • We are a Fair Trade Church, and members led the movement to make Balfron a Fair Trade Village.

  • We have a link through World Vision with a community in Kampong Tralach, Cambodia.

From the start, we have encouraged the reuse and recycling of unwanted goods by having collection points in the church and Balfron Library. Current details are given under Recycling .
