This online event seeks to help the UK church find its place in climate action by resourcing, equipping and informing on climate and racial justice issues.

Climate justice affects all of us, but it does not affect all equally. Socially and economically disadvantaged groups are more vulnerable – and in many parts of the world, these are largely communities of colour.

In light of the recent IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report warning us that people have caused unprecedented and irreversible change to the climate, the church is strongly urged to consider: What might God be saying to the UK church, in its breadth of diversity, and our involvement in bringing about climate justice? 

Global leaders, politicians, activists and scientists will gather at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) this November in Glasgow, Scotland to accelerate action to tackle climate change, for the sake of humanity and our planet. Could this significant summit also be an opportunity for us to discover the prophetic role of the church in creation care?

Christianity, climate and race seeks to help the UK church find its place in climate action by ensuring attendees are resourced, equipped and informed on climate and racial justice issues. The online event will explore four key questions:

  • Is climate justice biblical or purely political? (Theological)
  • Is climate justice part of God’s mission? (Missional)
  • How is climate justice related to other social justice concerns such as racial justice? (Social justice)
  • What can churches do to inspire and participate in climate action? (Action)

Christianity, climate and race has been organised by the Evangelical Alliance, Christian Aid and Tearfund.
