Chaplains at Bristol University’s Multifaith Chaplaincy were delighted to scoop a Bronze Award in theUniversity’s Green Impact Awards Scheme. Launched by the University to encourage its staff and students to improve their environmental performance, the Scheme resulted in over 1,000 sustainability actions being taken across the University.
The Multifaith Chaplaincy now has a dedicated ‘sustainability zone’ in its kitchen for the collection of plastic, glass, cans and composting materials, uses recycled paper for its printing, and has organic milk delivered in glass bottles.
Mrs Rachael Fletcher, the Free Church Chaplain (funded by the Methodist, Baptist and United Reformed Churches) was presented with the Award by the Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University. She said: ‘The Multifaith Chaplaincy has a pastoral and prophetic role to play in the University community. As a Christian Chaplain and a follower of Jesus, it was important for me to be involved in the Award Scheme as a witness to God’s love and care for his creation.’
