A message from the Eco Church Committee:

On Sunday 9 May, we held a Climate Sunday service in Hereford Cathedral (scroll down to watch this service). This was to raise awareness of the progress made by the cathedral to improve our carbon footprint and environmental awareness, and to suggest ways we can influence the UN Conference of Parties (COP26) in Glasgow in November.

As part of this service, we encouraged members of the congregation to join in a ‘virtual walk to Glasgow’, to support the Young Christian Network pilgrimage from Cornwall to Glasgow which has been taking place this year, as well as to sign a Christian Aid petition about climate change. The overall total from the virtual walk was 2,727 miles, which is the equivalent of sending a team of 8 people to walk the 340 miles from Hereford to Glasgow!

The collective action and commitments from local churches across Great Britain & Ireland will be presented to the UK Government at a Nations Climate Sunday Service in Glasgow on Sunday 5th September 2021.
