Community & global engagement

We organise a monthly litter pick – we have found many interesting items as well as the usual rubbish!

Some of us have met with our MP to discuss environmental matters. The young people organised a sale of recycled toilet rolls. The money raised was used to twin our toilets which paid for toilets in a developing country.

We are a Fair Trade Church and have a Fair Trade stall in the church during Fair Trade fortnight, encouraging people to buy Fair Trade goods.

There is a regular weekly walk encouraging people to get out and enjoy God’s earth.

Some of us have helped with local conservation projects.

We have helped to promote Eco Church: eg speaking on Radio Solent, taking part in the production in Diocesan eco film, and presenting our progress at local meetings as well as talking informally with members of other churches.

We pray regularly for Wolf Fields – an A Rocha project. We have an email group of people willing to sign e-petitions concerning environmental issues.
