Ipswich Road URC is a Fairtrade church. This means that we serve Traidcraft tea, coffee and sugar after our Sunday morning services and at all other church events, including our weekly Friday morning Drop In. We have Traidcraft goods (food, household goods, gifts and greetings cards) available for sale. The twice-yearly catalogue is also available.

Traidcraft works across the world with producers to help small-scale farmers and workers lift themselves from poverty. This enables the poorest to restore their dignity, give their (often extended) families enough to eat and somewhere adequate to live. The children are also able to obtain an education – leading to less poverty for future generations.
