Queensferry Parish Church is a registered Eco-Congregation and gained its first award in 2009.
Under the new Eco-Congregation award scheme we were awarded our Bronze award in January 2018 and our Silver Award in May 2019. We are now working towards Gold!
We are a founder member of ‘Plastic Free Queensferry’ - working towards reducing the use of single use plastic in Queensferry (and further afield!)
Whilst we can’t meet and plan activities during the restrictions due to Coronavirus - you can be active in your community. As part of Plastic Free Queensferry we would encourage you to take part in #ReturntoOffender - a way of reporting plastic pollution directly to the people who create the plastic items. For more information see https://www.sas.org.uk/campaign/return-to-offender/

We are participate in many initiatives, such as Earth Hour, Litter picks and Climate change campaigns
