LUPC places a high value on care for God’s creation and actively seek ways in which we can make a positive difference to our carbon footprint as individuals and as a community.
We gained our Silver Eco-Congregation Award in May 2020 with initiatives which included:
- the creation of an Eco Awareness Stand in the church;
- a Green Guide for Users of the Church and West Barn;
- a major revitalisation of the Community Garden at Carmondean Community Centre;
- an eco-focussed Children’s Holiday Club.
Here is a message from Angela Constance MSP on receipt of our Silver Award:
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s “Switch Off for your world”. A very cool idea from Eco Warrior, Eilidh Browning (age 11), was to spend the hour reading stories to her family from a book called “EARTH HOUR” by Lily Dyu.
Watch the birdie!
Thank you to everyone who participated again this year. 🙂
