Learn more about Fair Trade and how it connects with your faith, meet and share with others.

 

Around Australia there are people in churches who are passionate about Fair Trade. Many operate in isolation with little support other than their own enthusiasm under the guidance of God to sustain their passion. The second Fair Trade Faith Conference, this time to be held in Springwood,  NSW in 2019 has the following aims:

  - To bring together Christian people who see that fair trade grows directly from the social      justice dimension of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  - To encourage and develop means of sharing fair trade and ethical shopping.

  - To experience quality input to expand understanding of fair trade in Australia.

  - To share ideas.

FREE EVENT

Noelene Martin Fair Trade Memorial Lecture
Saturday 1 June 7.30pm

 

Noelene Martin was a passionate Fair Trade advocate. In the early 1980s she sold World Development Tea in woven baskets when the family was living in Coolamon, NSW. When they moved to England in 1985 she became a volunteer rep with Traidcraft, travelling around North Shropshire and beyond speaking about Fair Trade and selling products. On returning to Australia in 1988 Noelene found very little Fair Trade activity but tried to stimulate interest in Taree and later Penrith. With an increasing number of fair traders she led the establishment in 2012 of the annual Fair Trade Fair at Springwood in the Blue Mountains. Noelene’s promotion of Fair Trade grew out of her deep Christian Faith. Following her sudden death on 29th August, 2014 the obvious reading at her funeral service was The Final Judgement at Matthew 25:31-46 where people are welcomed or rejected on the way they treat the hungry, thirsty, naked, sick or imprisoned. Noelene saw Fair Trade as a practical way of helping people in distant places.

MICAH 6:8

The Lord has shown you what is good.
    He has told you what he requires of you.
You must act with justice.
    You must love to show mercy.
And you must be humble as you live in the sight of your God.
