12 February, 8:30am, Westminster, London

Christian Climate Action is holding a vigil outside Church House, at 8:30 am on Wednesday 12th February, when the General Synod will be debating the climate emergency. This vigil will be a memorial service for all the children who have already been killed by the climate emergency.

They have invited members of the General Synod and would also like to invite Green Christian members and friends.

What do I need to bring?
– please wear black. This is a funeral service for all the children who have lost their lives due to the climate emergency. It is going to be a somber occasion.
– please bring a flower/flowers if you can, perhaps a small pot of planted snowdrops. We will be handing these to Synod representatives.
– they are gathering for the service from 8:30. After the service has drawn to a close, they will stay for a while to generally pray together, sing songs and pay respects to those who have lost their lives. If you have a poem, song or something that you would like to share please do bring it.

For more information, see their website and facebook event.

It is essential that we highlight the devastation and its profound effects so far, so that we take all the steps we can to rapidly respond to prevent further catastrophes.
