    We're all becoming more aware of our impact on the planet, and many of us are already taking steps to lower our carbon footprint.
    The Methodist Church has set itself the bold target of becoming a net zero emissions church by 2030, but that will only happen if we all play our part.
    Has your church already signed up to become an Eco Church (or Eco Congregation in Scotland)?
    Are you thinking of doing it, but worried it'll be too much work?
    Or maybe you're already well on the way to bronze, and wanting to share what you're learning with others.

    Join the Learning Network and the Evangelism and Growth Team in conversation with Hamish Leese, the Connexional Officer who's spearheading our efforts to reach net zero.
    You'll hear inspiring stories, pick up tips, and learn about new funding that's available to help your church reach net zero.

    Zoom event for parents/ carers, grandparents, volunteers with children, youth and families, and those who would like to see more happening with the young yins!

    This event is to try and establish a community to support those of us who have a concern for the young folks in our congregations.

    It will be a place to pray, share stories, share resources and ideas, ask questions and build friendships across the Scotland and Shetland districts to help you as you disciple the under 18s in your care.

    Even if you are not currently active in ministry in this area, but you still care about the little (and not so little!) ones you would be most welcome as part of this group.

    Learning Network is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

    Topic: The Well Scotland and Shetland Districts

    Time: May 28, 2024 07:30 PM London

    Perhaps you have found yourself asking some of these questions:

    • How do we do mission when we’re all worn out?
    • What if we have big ideas and a small congregation?
    • How do we produce a circuit mission plan?
    • What does Net Zero have to do with it all?

    This online conference seeks to inspire you to discover the particular gifts your church/es have to offer the world and to create simple, useful plans for positive action. Through a mixture of presentations and team coaching sessions, we'll explore God's call to share the love of Christ in word and deed with all of creation, offering what we have and letting the Spirit get to work.

    Maybe your church has struggled to get started with mission planning. Or you've made a start, but got stuck along the way. Perhaps you have a mission plan, but it hasn't yet translated into positive action. Or maybe you're leading a whole circuit in mission planning. Wherever you are, this conference will help you get unstuck and get going. Presentations will explore topics such as mission planning and creation care, doing mission in small churches, building community partnerships and mission planning at circuit level.

    The conference is aimed at lay and ordained church leaders: church and circuit stewards, lay workers, ministers and Superintendents - all those responsible for helping churches live out their calling. Individuals are welcome, but for an even greater impact, why not bring a team from your church or circuit?

    The Iona Community, an ecumenical Christian organisation, is hosting an Interfaith Week at Iona Abbey on the beautiful island of Iona. The week is open to people of all faiths and none. The week will be facilitated by Dr Maureen Sier and Frances Hume from Interfaith Scotland; Zarina Ahmad, a climate activist based in Manchester, and Caro Penney, Abbey Warden and Moderator of the Iona Community’s Interfaith Relations Common Concern Network.

    The focus of the week will be on environmental protection. Protecting the environment is a key message in the scriptures of all faith traditions. In this interfaith week we will explore what different faiths have to say about respect for all life, and the careful and responsible protection and preservation of the earth’s resources. We will look at the actions different faith communities are taking in response to the climate crisis and – weather-permitting – we will engage in some nature-based activities during the course of the week.

    The cost for 6 nights is £762 per adult, £381 for reduced rate. The reduced rate applies to students in full-time education, people whose only income is from state benefits or a state pension, people paid beneath the real living wage of £12.00 an hour, and those who are homeless, refugees, or asylum seekers.

    You can find out more about the week at the link below where you will also find the link to BOOK onto the week.
