Switch to green power
at Methodist Church House
"It is out with the old and in with the
new as Methodist Church House in London switches to green electricity.

green energy sources and urges individuals and churches to follow

can. I negotiated this contract via a broker and the same broker will
endeavour to make green energy available to all our churches throughout
