In order to sustain and renew the life of the earth (one of the Five Marks of Mission of the Anglican Church) the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland are raising awareness for climate change.
Climate Sunday is an initiative which is calling on local parishes to hold a climate-focused service ahead of the UN Climate Change Summit which takes place on 31st October 2021.
Canon Andrew Orr, recently appointed Honorary Canon at St Fin Barre’s Cathedral, Cork with special responsibility to raise awareness across the Diocese for environmental issues is the Chair of Eco-Congregation Ireland and member of the Church and Society Commission. On behalf of this Commission, he has worked together with many other voices to create the short video below encouraging local parishes to support Climate Sunday.
As a parish, you can register your interest and find information at www.climatesunday.org. These pledges will be presented to the UK Government at a Nations Climate Sunday Service in Glasgow on Sunday, 5th September 2021.
