Fair and Local Diocese
CAPTION: Purity Mothoni serves Fairtrade tea after church as many of us do. She also grows it on her smallholding for Traidcraft. Purity and her family are among the millions who grow the refreshments we enjoy day to day.
Fairtrade Fortnight, 26 Feb -11 March 2018
Invite your church community to come on in to Fairtrade this Fairtrade Fortnight to see the life-changing difference that choosing Fairtrade makes. Meet Florentina Beitia, Fairtrade banana producer, Coobana, Panama. The church resources include prayers and ideas for family worship and a special focus on Florentina and her community, or there are ideas of how to include trade justice into the lectionary readings for Sunday 25 Feb or Sunday 4 March. Plus there’s an outline for a home group or small group meeting.
Over 140 parishes have committed to supply Fairtrade refreshments at their activities and services. Many more meet the criteria and could apply. Please use the application form Fairtrade Church Application Exeter Diocese and help us become a Fairtrade Diocese.
Traidcraft also provides an outline for a special church service to help you celebrate: Traidcraft Fairtrade Church Service.
