We are delighted to tell you that the Fairtrade Foundation has declared that Bessels Green Baptist Church is now officially a FAIRTRADE CHURCH. Just before Christmas the leadership team decided that if we were serious about living out our church values we should commit to becoming a Fairtrade Church. Now that we are fully certified we will
- Use Fairtrade tea and coffee after services and at other meetings for which the church has responsibility
- Use Fairtrade sugar, biscuits and other products where possible
- Promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight and at other times during the year
We have produced a leaflet outlining in more detail what this means, you can download a copy here.
FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 25th February – 10th March.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all smallholder farmers in developing countries could grow more and provide more food for their families and communities to work their own way out of poverty? You can help make this happen on Sunday 3rd March.
- Join us in the hall after the morning service for a free Treasure Hunt for all the family
- Buy a Fairtrade cake to enjoy with your coffee
- Check out the Traidcraft stall – order your Easter eggs now!
- Make a donation to Traidcraft Exchange
All donations and proceeds will go to support the training of small-scale producers in methods of sharing skills and knowledge.
