World development Group

The Diocesan World Development Group encourages and helps people throughout the Diocese to foster sustainable economic development in the underdeveloped world abroad.

Amongst other things, the Group:

  • promotes fair trade, especially in parish churches and church schools;
  • organises the Bishop's annual Harvest Appeals to parishes and schools - appeals which support a selection of worthwhile development projects in poor countries overseas;
  • prompts appropriate campaigning on matters affecting world development.

The Group comprises a handful of clerical and lay volunteers. For more information, please read the introductory leaflet or contact the secretary:
