LAUNCH OF ST ANDREWS STEENBERG ENVIRONMENTAL GROUP
On the 4th of February, St Andrew’s Steenberg launched their environmental group. A small group of keen volunteers started a recycling group. Over the last six months they have collected over 2 tonnes of paper and saved the equivalent of 48 trees!!
The group is now embracing the broader environmental ministry and will be looking at cleanups, planting trees and vegetables as well as awareness raising. The youth are keen to start a hiking club as well.
Rev Rachel Mash, provincial environmental coordinator was invited to the launch service. Given the severity of the water crisis, she talked about the sacredness of water and reminded us that we are all baptized into the family of God through water.
