More than a year ago, the Scottish Episcopal congregation at St Mary’s in Ullapool registered as an Eco-Church. This meant they became part of a scheme which keeps an eye to best practice ecologically speaking when making decisions about what products to buy, keeping utility costs to a minimum and investing ethically. This is also evident in their worship, choosing at least one hymn each Sunday with a ‘creation’ theme to it, introducing environmental concerns from time to time through preaching, and through Sunday school teaching and activities.
Further to this, St Mary’s is making inroads into the community under their Eco-Church banner, by making their chapel available from time to time to the community for the showing of ecologically-minded and environmentally-aware films. The films are made available via Take One Action, and the first showing will be at 7pm on Thursday 4th April. The film will be Fractured Land, and below is a bit about it to whet any appetites! Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be served, and entrance will be free.
Our thanks go to Joanna Wright, Fr David & Clare Brown who are organising this, and especially to the Ullapool art gallery An Talla Solais, whose generous sponsoring of the St Mary’s Cinema has made the funding of this project possible.
