We are encouraging churches to hold a special Climate Sunday service or event, to make a commitment to tackle climate change, and to raise their voices to call on world leaders to do the same. Climate Sunday has been organised by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland with support from charities including CAFOD, Christian Aid, Tearfund, A Rocha UK, and Operation Noah.
We invite your church to do one or more of three things:
- 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.
- Make a commitment as a local church community to taking long term action to reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions.
- Join with other churches and wider society by continuing to call for the UK government to take much bolder action on climate change in this country following the outcomes of COP26.
