The Nations’ Climate Sunday Service at Glasgow Cathedral:
1,950 churches and charities prepare for COP26
On Sunday, 40 Christian denominations and charities from across the UK came together for a special service marking ‘Climate Sunday’ at Glasgow Cathedral, close to where the COP26 climate summit will take place in two months’ time.
100 days before the start of international climate negotiations, a
unique Christian coalition calls on every UK church to act
With only 100 days to go until COP26 - the critical international climate negotiations which the UK government will host and chair in Glasgow in November - a broad coalition of Christian denominations and charities is calling on all churches to hold a ‘Climate Sunday’ and commit to effective action themselves, before talks begin. So far more than 1,500 churches across Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland are taking part and hundreds more, including several cathedrals, are planning to do so.
