Easter and Social Justice

Block of chocolate and cocoa beans

In the lead up to Easter, many of us may be thinking about buying and eating chocolate. Sadly, hazardous child labour in chocolate production is widespread and growing. But there are many things we can be doing about it, including (but not limited to!) buying ethically produced chocolate.

See here for information about a new ethical chocolate shopping guide or read more about the challenges of chocolate production and some ways you can support slavery-free chocolate here.

Doing offerings differently

During last Sunday’s first video service, Tim spoke about ways in which we might share our ‘Time, Talents and Treasure’ as we do church differently. Some of you have been asking how you might make your financial contributions while we are currently unable to congregate in person.

There are two options currently available: making offerings using bank transfer, or having someone collect your offering using the envelope system. More information can be found here.

Tim and the parish council are working hard on ways for us to worship God, serve others and care for our Christ-centred community in these challenging times. We will keep in touch with you all as best we can and we welcome your ideas.

Title text reads 2020 Parish Offering: "On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother; and they knelt down and paid him homage. Then, opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh." (Matthew 2:11)
