Links to other initiatives at St Peter’s

The greening the church programme is closely linked to a number of other initiatives at St Peter’s.

One is the plan to renovate St Peter’s churchyard to provide a safe communal space where people can appreciate and enjoy the historical and cultural legacy of St Peter’s.  The plans to renovate the churchyard are covered in St Peter’s church magazine – The Key Spring 2008 edition (page 6).   One of the points in our environmental action plan is to donate money to overseas environmental initiatives, and in 2008 the church’s Mission and Unity Committee agreed to donate money to the work of the Anglican church in the Horn of Africa and in Ethiopia in particular in order that local people affected by environmental disasters might benefit. 

There are other links too – for example, to the work of the Youth Group which from time to time is involved in environmental projects.  The Key is used to communicate developments on greening the church to the congregation.

Do you see the link between religion and environmentalism?

If any of these sort of issues interest you, why not join us in helping to move the green community initiative forward ?  You can join by contacting either Dennis Parker (denjpark@btinternet.com) or Sally Martin (martins3632@btinternet.com) and/or by just coming along at any time to one of the evening meetings organised in 2009 to take the initiative forward.  

The dates and other details of these meetings are given above.  You can commit yourself to just as little or as much as you want.  You can just give your view if you wish, or you can help organise some of the actions which we are planning to take forward in 2009 and beyond, and you can help shape these initiatives at the same time.  If you have no experience of environmental issues, then it does not matter.  However, if you have experience of them, come along and let us learn from your experience.
