A Mission statement was made in October 2009 and the Service Core Group took forward Fairtrade in the Church. Organisations in and using the church went over to using Fairtrade products.

In November 2011 after a meeting with Martin Rhode of the Scottish Fair Trade Forum three of our congregation undertook with others to start a steering group to help Arbroath become a Fairtrade town.

In December 2011 St Andrew’s Church gained Fairtrade Status after the hard work of the Service Core Group and the whole congregation.

There is regular support for, and contact with events in the town and schools.
