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.
We believe at St Luke’s that an important part of trusting Jesus and following His ways is to care for the world created for us.
We can all make a difference, however insignificant it feels.
We’ll be posted some resources to help you in ways we can all manage.
It’s a beautiful world. Let’s care for it : )
Here is part one, and it’s all about water

Whenever necessary, I write an update on the latest strategical developments in St Luke’s. So these are not scheduled. They come out when it is really important. I call it ‘I was thinking’, for this reflects the function of these editions; to show why we are doing what we are doing and, I hope, joins up all the strategic dots as we travel forward together.
Until now, we have not put these on the website. Now though, with more and more coming along to St Luke’s, it’s important we try and communicate even more effectively.
So the latest edition is here and speaks about our development into the fifth Mark of Mission, namely ‘Care of the Earth’.
It’s in Word format.
