Glasgow Cathedral is pleased to welcome Christian Aid and the Kingdom Choir for an evening of song and discussion “The Time Is Now”, which focuses on God’s world and the current condition we find it in.
COP26 is a huge moment for the world to stand together against climate change. We believe the church in the UK and around the world has a crucial role to play. We can influence political leaders to be ambitious and to take steps to end the climate crisis. The church can speak up with a strong moral voice. Together, we can mobilise members to challenge the abuse of creation and insist on the value and dignity of every human being as we highlight the devastating effects of climate change on the poorest and most marginalised communities in the global South, with whom Christian Aid works.
We believe all of us can offer powerful witness, in words and actions, for a future where everyone can flourish. We also believe that climate justice is inextricably linked with racial injustice, with black and brown people in both the global South and the global North on the frontline of climate crisis. That’s why you’ll see a theme running throughout this evening of racial justice as we call for urgent action, a more diverse climate moment and the dignity, equality and justice of every human being.
We hope you will enjoy this evening, but we also hope you will be encouraged and stirred to continue in the road ahead and the fight that is to come for climate justice. Together, we can stop this climate crisis.
