We use Fairtrade coffee, tea and sugar and encourage the use of other Fairtrade products. To continue as a Fairtrade Church we have to reapply to the Fairtrade Foundation every 2 years,with evidence of what we do to support and encourage Fairtrade.
There is a Fairtrade Stall on the fourth Sunday of January, March, May, June, September and November. A range of goods may be purchased before and after the service. The stall is run by Clive Holmes who rotate the goods around a number of churches and other venues.
For more information on fairtrade see the Fairtrade Foundations’s website.
One of our members is part of the working group, led by our MP Holly Lynch, aiming to make Halifax a Fairtrade Town
