The Shapinsay Kirk is now part of eco congregation Scotland (find out more at www.ecocongregationscotland.org). Rev Julia came in to speak to us with Adrian Shaw from the Church of Scotland, and they brought with them a baton made from a recycled church pew. The baton is travelling across Scotland before going to Paris with a message for those taking part in the Paris climate change talks in December.
We watched this video about climate change and we learned that we can have a positive impact on climate change by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide we produce. We all (including the adults from the community who came in too) made a pledge. By all making small changes, we can hopefully help other communities around the world where climate change is causing people to leave their homes.

Rev Julia Meason came in today to work with some parents about online safety, following guidance from CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection). It was a useful session, and we hope to carry out another session in an evening soon for anyone who couldn't come today.
