To mark World Environment Day on 5 June, will you join thousands of others in a national day of prayer for the climate crisis?
Prayer in the Park is a prayer event uniting people and churches across the UK. We’ll be celebrating the beauty of God’s world, repenting of the damage we’ve done to creation that is also hurting people living in poverty, and seeking God’s heart for a fairer world that works for everyone.
Just days after World Environment Day, the G7 summit will take place in Cornwall where world leaders will discuss the global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. Then in November, the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow will bring together world leaders to take action on the climate crisis. Decisions made at these gatherings will affect us all, now and for generations to come – especially those living in the poorest communities across the world.
We want to bring these meetings, and the climate crisis, to God in prayer. Will you join us?
You can join in with Prayer in the Park on your own or in small groups, as restrictions allow. Simply head outdoors to a park or other green space. We’ve created a prayer resource with prayer points to help guide you in a prayer walk or a time of stillness in God’s wonderful creation. Together, we will pray for our local environments, global neighbours, world leaders and the church as we lift up the climate crisis and the climate summits happening this year.

PS You may remember that last year we successfully campaigned as part of a small coalition to end UK funding of fossil fuels overseas. We were delighted to hear last week that we’d won the ‘David & Goliath’ prize for this campaign at the prestigious Sheila McKechnie Foundation National Campaigner Awards! THANK YOU if you raised your voice with us to influence this important policy change that will help people living in poverty to access clean energy. Read more about the win and the award here!
