The G7 summit is happening in Carbis Bay, Cornwall on 11-13 June 2021

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he ‘will use the UK’s G7 Presidency to unite leading democracies to help the world fight, and then build back better from coronavirus and create a greener, more prosperous future.’

We think this is something to pray for and to hold our government accountable!

Here are a selection of recommendations to do that.

Prayer

19 May: Online Christian prayer service
10 June: Interfaith event livestreamed from Truro Cathedral

Post

Send a postcard to the PM about G7

Also more suggested actions under Christian Aid’s Wave of hope

Pilgrimage

Christian Climate Action is organising a short pilgrimage along the beautiful Celtic Way leaving Newquay first thing on Tuesday 8 June, arriving in Carbis Bay on Friday 11 June.

And The Young Christian Climate Network is running the Churches’ Relay from G7 to COP26

What is the G7?

The G7 (or Group of Seven) is an organisation made up of the world’s seven largest so-called advanced economies: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.

This year, the UK has invited Australia, India, South Korea and South Africa as guest countries to this year’s G7.

The group regards itself as “a community of values”, with freedom and human rights, democracy and the rule of law, and prosperity and sustainable development as its key principles.
