Our World COP 26
Prayer for COP 26
We praise your name with all you have created. You are present in the whole universe, and in the smallest of creatures.
We acknowledge the responsibilities you have placed upon us as stewards of your creation. May the Holy Spirit inspire all political leaders at COP26 as they seek to embrace the changes needed to foster a more sustainable society.
Instil in them the courage and gentleness to implement fairer solutionsfor the poorest and most vulnerable,
and commit their nations to the care of Our Common Home. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ your Son. Amen

What is Climate Sunday?
The Climate Sunday initiative is calling on all local churches across Great Britain & Ireland to hold a climate-focused service on any Sunday before 5 September 2021. At this service, congregations are encouraged to make a commitment to greater action to address climate change in their own place of worship and community and to use their voice to tell politicians we want a cleaner, greener, fairer future at the heart of plans agreed during COP26

Guardian Angels for Climate Sunday
“The Guardian Angels for Climate Sunday Group” (GACS) was formed on the 16th January 2021 in our Parish, with Father Graham’s support. Thus, St Peter and Guardian Angels Church has joined the Christian environmental movement by participating in “Make the Conference of Parties 26 (COP26 Matter” initiative.
The group will work together with other churches in the UK to help the success of the world environmental conference COP26, which is going to be hosted by the UK, and held in Glasgow in November 2021.
The United Nations Conference of Parties (COP) task is to work out measures to avert the climate crisis, which is threatening the future of the globe, the climate, communities, plants and animal world.
The time is truly running out.
GACS meets through zoom due to Covid-19.

Pope's Ted Talk
The global climate crisis will require us to transform the way we act, says His Holiness Pope Francis.
Delivering a visionary TED Talk from Vatican City, the spiritual leader proposes three courses of action to address the world’s growing environmental problems and economic inequalities, illustrating how all of us can work together, across faiths and societies, to protect the Earth and promote the dignity of everyone.
