How can your church speak and act prophetically at this critical time? Read on for some ideas.

Climate Sunday

Organised by EIN, Climate Sunday’s materials, produced for COP26, are still a fabulous resource for any church wanting to hold a climate-focused service.

Declare a Climate Emergency

Declaring a climate emergency is a powerful way to speak prophetically to society and government about the urgency of the climate crisis. 

The Climate Emergency Toolkit brings together loads of brilliant resources from lots of organisations, including Tearfund, Green Christian and many others  – organising them into a clear, manageable journey for every church. 

Green Christian called for churches to declare a climate emergency in 2019. We are delighted that Tearfund have put together this beautifully presented and easy-to-follow resource. We hope and pray that churches up and down the country will take this opportunity to be part of this prophetic voice for change.

Call for the CEE Bill

We need the UK to demonstrate genuine climate leadership in taking meaningful action commensurate with the unfolding emergencies.

The CEE Bill would legislate to close the huge gap between pledges and policies. Support for this truth-telling legislation will demonstrate public and political support for radical action.

Pray for COP26

Get your church praying

See our Pray for the Climate and Creation Emergency page for ideas of how to pray at this time. Important climate decisions are being made well ahead of the next official negotiations in Egypt – it is never too early to start praying!

Season of Creation 2024

The Season of Creation runs from 1st September to 4th October. A time for churches to pray for and give thanks for God’s gift of creation.

Can I suggest support (I.e. time, effort and money) for ideas like regenerative farming and silviculture which can act as carbon sinks. Have a look at Gabe Brown's work in N Dakota for example.
