We give 15% of our income from stewardship and plate collections to local, national and international charity partners, whom we uphold in prayer, and whose work we are privileged to share
Fairtrade at St Andrew's
St Andrew's supports Faitrade. For farmers and workers, Fairtrade means workers’ rights, safer working conditions and fairer pay. For shoppers it means high quality, ethically produced products.
Our Fairtrade stall is open every Sunday in the church centre foyer between 10.30 and 11.30. We also offer a delivery service.
St Andrew's Church is determined to pursue ecological values and reduce our carbon footprint.
We have signed up to the A Rocha Eco Church programme of self assessment and have gained the Bronze award. We are currently working towards the silver award.
