Faith, Hope & Climate Change

on .

In November 2021, Glasgow will host COP26 (the United Nations Climate Change Conference). Emphasising community action, the conference seeks to bring global powers "together for our planet". For many Christians this is an important and much anticipated event.

We feel called to fulfil our duty of care towards the creation which God called 'good', and every living thing. Come November, however, many of us will sit as onlookers to the conference, frustrated to be so distant from the action. 

Faith, Hope + Climate Change invites churches and faith groups from across the UK to join us as we gather online together for our planet, and together in our faith. Trinity College Glasgow will host seven evenings, each aiming to equip you with the inspiration to approach climate change activism within your wider communities. Each evening, we will invite you to learn from high-profile scholars and speakers, and get involved through three innovative action tracks, which will inspire you and support you over the 7 weeks to take creative and prophetic action in your church and community.

Over seven evenings from 15 September to 27 October, we invite you to join with us online as we gather together for our planet, and together in our faith. We will join with Trinity College Glasgow’s weekly countdown to COP26, each session aiming to inspire an approach to climate change action within our wider communities.

The course will take place on Wednesday evenings, 7 - 9 p.m. via Zoom. Details for participation by our Riverside Churches group are now available. Please contact Peter (This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are registered as one church group, but can individually join the presentation and discussion that follows.
