Tips and Tricks from the Green Team!

Little ways we can be more eco-friendly in our everyday lives.



Take a tip from farmer Prince Charles who is very aware of the


impact that cattle are having on climate change through methane

emissions. He is choosing to make one day a week “Dairy Free”,

consuming no dairy products, only plant based alternatives.



Sunday 5 December


10.30am: Rachel will lead our annual Gift Service which will take place with our friends from the Salvation Army. Gifts towards luxury hampers and money for the Salvation Army to purchase such items will be gratefully received. Gift Aid forms will be available.

The service will include Holy Communion and be followed by a short but important extraordinary meeting of the Church Council. Refreshments will be served in the hall as usual.
