In 2019, Telford & Wrekin Council declared a climate emergency. It is now working, along with partners, to go carbon neutral by 2030 – and to reduce single-use plastic across the council by 2023!

Al Saint's Church in Wellington replaced the existing house and stage lighting with LED lighting.

The project was implemented in two phases. The stage lighting upgrade was undertaken by a local stage lighting company, in early October 2021 and the house lighting upgrade (focussing on those used most frequently) was undertaken by a local electrician in December 2021.

The feedback from regular congregation members and from visitors has been very positive.  The building was used for the recording of the Charlton School Christmas productions, and the Church also hosted the Mayor’s Carol Service. The new lighting enhanced the service, and its live streaming.

The estimated annual carbon reduction is 2.4 tonnes, with an associated annual cost saving of around £500 for the church.
