Eco Congregation

Inchinnan Parish Church  


Our Minister, from time to time, leads us in worship celebrating God's creation, reminding us of our responsibility to take care of it to the best of our ability.  Our Worship Group conduct services occasionally with an ecology theme.


We have recently taken delivery of a Textile Bank from the Salvation Army for recycling clothes and shoes. It is located in the Church car park for the use of the local Community.

 (Including underwear)

  Handbags                                                              Any item with “stuffing”

The Salvation Army have informed us ‘We know that “Undesirable Items” will always be found within our Banks and make every effort to sort, reuse and recycle as much as possible.

Residual items are sent to our waste contractor to be processed as Energy from Waste.’
