From November 9-20 this year, Glasgow is hosting the COP26 summit that is seen as crucial if climate change is to be brought under control. But what can we do as a church, collectively and individually?
Earlier this year, Bishops Robert and David asked all chaplaincies in Europe “to care enough for our common home so that it remains a sustainable place for future generations” emphasising that “Now is the time to act!”. All chaplaincies have been given “A practical path programme to net zero for our churches”, which is fully supported by our Chaplaincy Council.
In terms of carbon emissions, Holy Trinity is much more than just the building, grounds, and activities. As members of our church community, we each bear part of the responsibility to safeguard God’s creation, and must work individually and collectively towards the common goal of reducing our own carbon emissions, as well as those of our church. It is for this reason your Church Council urges you to read and act on these recommendations which have been put together by Green Lantern, our church’s environmental group.
