|Seeking justice in the world is a fundamental tenet of all faiths. Campaigning for Fairtrade is one way in which many faith groups are pursuing this goal. If you would like to get involved in a practical and empowering scheme which gets the whole community involved, then you can take part in our Fairtrade Places of Worship scheme.
Places of Worship
Your church, synagogue, mosque or temple can make a difference by becoming a Fairtrade Place of Worship.
An ever-growing number of churches is making the connection between trade and poverty and committing to using Fairtrade products including tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits.
The three goals
Your Church Council/Church Meeting must agree to the following:
How to apply
Once you have achieved the three goals, please complete the Fairtrade Church Application Form and return it to the Fairtrade Foundation by email or post to Fairtrade Church Application, The Fairtrade Foundation, 3rd Floor, Ibex House, 42-47 Minories, London EC3N 1DN. Once your application has been processed, we will send you a pack of materials including a Fairtrade Church certificate to display in your church.
How to become a Fairtrade Place of Worship
To become a Fairtrade Place of Worship, your mosque, temple, gurdwara or other place of worship needs to meet three goals which are about pledging to use and promote Fairtrade products.
