Share this story

Eco Congregation Ireland (ECI) is delighted to launch a new small grant scheme for churches and congregations.  Thanks to generous sponsorship from church supplies companies RPD Ltd and Logos Publications, churches across Ireland can apply for a grant to support biodiversity or energy conservation projects.  

The grants will be between €100/£90 and €500/£450, and the ECI committee will be looking for small scale practical projects which are either already running or will begin before the end of 2024.  The church or congregation must have already registered with ECI (a very simple process) and begun their Eco Congregation journey. The closing date for applications is 31st July 2024

Andrew Orr, Chair of ECI said, “ we are delighted to receive the generous sponsorship from RPD and Logos Publications, and we are looking forward to helping congregations north and south to put the care of God’s world into practical action”.

Tom Clements, CEO of RPD Ltd and Logos Publications said, “We are very grateful for the support we have received from Irish churches over the last fifty years and we are delighted to be able to give something back by helping support the mission of Eco Congregation Ireland.” 

The criteria for the grants and an application form can be found here.

The successful applicants will be announced during the Season of Creation which runs from 1stSeptember to 4th October.
