With the G7 summit over, all eyes now turn to COP26 – the pivotal UN climate talks taking place in Glasgow in November. Success at these talks is essential: the climate crisis is accelerating and, without urgent action, it will push 132 million more people into poverty by the end of this decade. We must keep building pressure on our leaders to take strong and transformative action.
As Christians, we also have a crucial role to play through prayer and speaking up for change. Every action to shine a light on injustice makes a difference and is part of our worship. To help you step further into climate action, we’ve created a range of resources to equip you and your church to make a difference in this critical year. These include:
We’d also love to invite your church to join a global moment of prayer on Sunday 7 November
- a talk for you to use or adapt in church or a small group
- a climate fact sheet with accessible information
- a film series for small groups to explore the climate crisis
- a climate-themed virtual escape room adventure for three to ten players
- a Climate Emergency Toolkit giving churches a route map to respond
, during the middle weekend of COP26. We’ll provide a pre-recorded, hour-long service – featuring Pete Greig and Carol Ng'ang'a as speakers – that your church can use on that date, in full or in part. The service will also be live-streamed on our Facebook channel. Look out for more information in the coming weeks, but do ask your church leader to save the date!
You can find all of the resources mentioned in this email (and more) on our Reboot campaign page

if you have any questions, or if we can support you in any way.
Together, we can see a breakthrough in the climate crisis, and build a better world that works for everyone.
