The church joined in our Fairtrade Fortnight campaign by making the 10am Parish Eucharist on Sunday March 3rd a celebration of fairtrade. Hymns at the all age service were accompanied by the Worship Band. The sermon was replaced by a viewing of the Fairtrade Foundation video ‘The Story of Chocolate’.
The usual post service refreshments were supplemented by these fairtrade chocolate based cakes. A member of our team stepped out of her comfort zone to make a marbled cake with chocolate cream filling, a chocolate and beetroot cake iced with chocolate, plus a vegan chocolate cake.
The shop was open as usual supplemented by a chocolate themed display in the hall showing all our Traidcraft, Eat Your Hat and Divine chocolate bars as well as other items such as cocoa and cookies containing fair trade chocolate.
