St Michael’s Church is now the second church to achieve the award of Fairtrade Church. This means that as a community they have committed to supporting Fairtrade through three specific goals:
1. Using Fairtrade tea and coffee after services and in meetings.
2. Move forward using other Fairtrade products such as sugar, biscuits and fruit.
3. Promoting Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight and during the year through events, worship and other activities.
The church has already demonstrated its commitment to Fairtrade by including a Fairtrade flower arrangement as part of the May Fair flowers (did you see it?). Well done St Michael’s!
