Fair Trade Shop for Weymouth

On Tuesday 10th October 2017 the Fairbridge Trust opened The Bridge Fair Trade Shop at 24 Trinity Road, next to Holy Trinity Church. Fairbridge Trust is a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) set up by members of Holy Trinity Church with a vision to promote Fair Trade but also to support local and overseas charities working for the relief of poverty. They will continue to run the fair trade stall in church each week.

Canon Andrew blessed the shop before it opened and pictured are some church members and volunteers who will be running the shop.

The inspiration for the shop grew out of the regular church Traidcraft stall and will continue to stock a wide range of Traidcraft cards, gifts and food as well as all manner of fair trade products from a variety of suppliers.

The shop supports the Dorset Murugi Community Projects by selling bags and jewellery from Kenya and the Salisbury Diocesan Medical Link in Sudan and South Sudan; and by selling cards by local artist Keith Whittock.

Buying fair trade goods means farmers, producers and artisans get a fair price for their work, better living conditions, healthier and safer working conditions and the opportunity to provide education for their children. They have a say in how the fair trade premium is spent to help their local community. Fair trade benefits the environment by maximising the use of sustainable and recycled materials. Please support the shop and fair trade as much as you can.

    Holy Trinity Church Roof

    All the scaffolding is down and we can report that the roof is now, as far as we are aware, waterproof. This of course came with a huge cost but needed to be done. We are now applying for grants to see if we can cover more of the cost of £40.000 to pay for it. Last December we received £10,000 from the Muton Trust for which we are extremely grateful. Any kind donations thankfully received! We are about £12,000 short of our target.

Vicar’s letter for July 2018/August 2018

“God doesn’t have a holiday!

Working through a desk groaning with paper on a glorious sunny summer morning, I just happened to wish out loud that I was on holiday. However, I was soon reminded by a parishioner of the wonderful truth that God doesn’t have holidays.
