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
Today, it’s more crucial than ever that we hear the voices of farmers and workers in developing countries who supply our daily food and refreshments to earn a living for their families. We don’t want to lose the progress of the past two decades of Fairtrade. For Christians, this is about loving our neighbours – people thousands of miles away who are part of our everyday life. We need to speak up on their behalf more loudly than ever.
A good way to do this is to become a Fairtrade Church. 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.
