Two church representatives on the ECI Committee have decided to step down in recent days. Joe Furphy, PCI rep, was one of the founding members of Eco-Congregation Ireland. A civil servant in the Department of the Environment, he has been working and volunteering in the conservation movement for over 60 years. He is an active member of the Ulster Wildlife Trust and several other nature organisations. He has worked very hard to promote creation care in the Presbyterian Church, and the fruits of his work have been shown in the congregations which have joined us and gone on to receive awards. Thank you Joe for all your hard work and enjoy your retirement!
Steven Johnston has also stepped down as Methodist representative on the committee. He joined us in 2016 and has worked hard to spread the word about ECI in Methodist congregations north and south. Again we wish to say a huge thank you to him and wish him well in the future.
Andrew Orr, Chairperson
PS new representatives will be nominated by their respective church bodies shortly.
