We have decided to go for it and apply for a grant, to see if we can install solar panels on our roof.
This application will make us carbon-neutral as a church.
There is a long way to go and we may not be successful, but we think it’s worth a try : )
You can find more information of why solar panels can make a real difference with the resources below.
The Anglican Church of Southern Africa has an environmental network called Green Anglicans. They have a brilliant idea for Lent – fasting from the use of plastic, while reflecting on how our actions affect the world we live in. Each week has a theme – plastic bottles, food shopping, even clothing! Consider using this for your Lenten activity this year.
You can find out more about this initiative here.
The Less Plastic for Lent resource is here.
