Climate Sunday and COP26
Climate Sunday is an initiative of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, encouraging churches to hold a climate-focused service on any Sunday before 5 September 2021.
During their local Climate Sunday, churches are invited to do one or more of three things:
Worship: Hold a climate-focused service, to explore the theological and scientific basis of creation care and action on climate, to pray, and to commit to action.
Commit: Make a commitment as a local church community to taking long term action to reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions.
Speak up: Join with other churches and wider society by adding its name to a common call for the UK government to take much bolder action on climate change in this country in advance of COP26*, and to strengthen its credibility to lead the international community to adopt a step change in action at COP26. The culmination of the campaign will be a national Climate Sunday event on Sunday 5th September 2021, to share church commitments and pray for bold action and courageous leadership at COP26.
