The Rev Alex Currie, minister of Glasserton and Isle of Whithorn linked with Whithorn Priory, is pictured planting trees as part of the Vine Trust’s project building a new village at Kazunzu, Tanzania. He is pictured with Mussa Magwasela, Archbishop of Tanzania.


Hope Park and Martyrs Church in St Andrews hosted a successful Eco Fair last month.

The event brought together various local churches and organisations. Students and church members ran stalls selling donated vintage clothes and pre-loved jewellery. Windfall apples, home-made preserves and hand knitted cotton dishcloths were available at another stall and St Andrews University Student Voluntary Service environmental volunteers brought along an eco pledge tree (pictured).

Other stalls included Fair Trade hosted by St Leonard’s Parish Church, information on the Wonderbox (a well insulated beanbag which serves as a slow cooker) from Lochee Parish Church, energy advice from the St Andrews Environmental Network organisation, and recycling information from Fife Council.

The Fair was well attended and provided opportunities to share ideas and information, get to know each other and purchase eco friendly goods. It was well received in the community and proved a valuable method of networking with others as part of the church’s Eco Congregation activities.
