This year, the world’s biggest climate change summit was held in Glasgow on 1-12 November. At the United Nations Climate Summit, COP26, world leaders gathered to set targets to tackle the climate crisis.
Churches across the UK have the chance to use this as an opportunity, to jump deeper into prayer and action for creation. We also have the chance to raise our voice, and call for ambitious action from our leaders to bring about climate justice.

Our team members at COP26 are sending daily video updates from Glasgow, with the need-to-know information from that day and prayer points for the coming days. See them on our social media or at YouTube.

We’ve pulled together all the key details you need to know in to a short and easy to use briefing paper.
Local churches around Britain and Ireland are coming together before COP26, to worship, commit and speak up. Climate Sunday is the UK’s largest ecumenical initiative in the lead up to COP26. You’re invited to hold a climate-focussed service, where you can commit to long term action for the climate and raise your voice, to call for change.
Make sure you register your Climate Sunday service, to be included in our collective act of worship on 5 September 2021, live from Glasgow cathedral. Here, we’ll be presenting faith and government leaders with the actions churches have taken to step towards climate justice.
Climate Sunday is being organised by EIN, the Environmental Issues Network of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland.
We’ve brought together everything you need to know about events, campaigns and activities in the lead up to COP26. Explore our resources hub and get equipped to take this opportunity to advocate for climate justice.
