Low carbon cookery book
As a chaplaincy we are looking at ways to encourage a reduced carbon lifestyle as part of Christian witness, including eating less meat and choosing more sustainable options. With this in mind we are compiling a Low Carbon Cookery Book (delicious recipes without red meat and dairy free). Recipes are coming in but we still need more! Please send your recipes for inclusion to email@example.com
This idea has been approved by the Archdeacon and is being promoted across the archdeaconry.

Each are stand alone, and can be joined singly, or you are welcome to attend as many as you can. Each may have a leader, who arranges the material (as shown in the book) and leads on the discussion that week. We’d be delighted to have volunteers for leading but are also very happy for you to attend and discuss as a participant.
