An Eco Church
An Eco Congregation and a Fairtrade Church!
Congratulations – you’re now part of an Eco–Congregation! In November 2012 our excellent work was recognised as we were awarded the right to be the 248th Eco Congregation in England and Wales.
Recycling, reducing our energy use, honouring God for His creation, encouraging good stewardship of that great gift to us, reaching out to those whose lives are severely affected by climate change…. these are all the practical things that have been recognised in this award. See ecocongregation.org for further information.
This Eco Congregation adds to our Fairtrade Church status (held since 2006), which means we aim to
· Use Fairtrade tea and coffee after services and in all meetings for which we have responsibility
· Move forward on using other Fairtrade products such as sugar, biscuits and fruit
· Promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight and during the year through events, worship and other activities whenever possible
Look out in the News section for forthcoming events, and the opportunity to order Traidcraft goods.
Ideas and help are always welcome. Contact us via the Parish Office.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Carol Linfield, Sue Partridge, and Christian Hughes - the Eco Group
