Pete Honeball/: September 2018
Yesterday, Sunday 9th September, the focus of our Circuit Prayers was on Fairtrade.
As followers of Christ we strongly endorse the principles of Fairtrade, and a large part of our ministry should be focused on ensuring that we live our lives in a manner which adds to the quality of life of those around us.
One effective way in which we can help farmers and small producers in poorer countries is by purchasing their produce at a fair price; another really effective way we can help is to pray for them. Please support and remember in your prayers, all who promote and rely on Fairtrade.
