CLIMATE SUNDAY

Sunday, 6th September, 2020

Eco-Congregation Scotland is backing the new Climate Sunday initiative launched on World Environment Day, providing focus for churches committed to action combatting climate change.

Individual congregations will be encouraged to hold a special Climate Sunday during the year starting on 6th September 2020, the first Sunday in Creation Time, with free resources for every tradition and style of worship. Each church is invited to:

Hold a Climate Sunday service - focus worship and prayer on care for creation
Commit to local action - reducing carbon emissions as a church community
🔔 Call for global action - the UK government to act and lead towards COP26

Climate Sunday culminates with a national event on Sunday 5th September 2021 to share church commitments and pray for bold action with courageous leadership at COP26 in Glasgow.

Organised by
Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI) with initial backing from a range of denominations and charities, we will be encouraging more Scottish support for Climate Sunday and all churches to pray and act in the run-up to COP26.

Eco-Congregation Scotland chairperson Mary Sweetland said: "We need to take action as Christians who care for God’s creation, tackling the climate emergency with urgency now and for future generations. When we welcome thousands from around the world, online or in person to COP26, we can all demonstrate that we are taking action and leading by example in our own church and across the country. We all share a unique opportunity in the year ahead for transformational change, taking practical steps to change our own behaviour and calling on governments to agree global action when they gather in Glasgow. Climate Sunday helps link this directly with our spiritual life, focussing local churches on the environment in worship, prayer and action."

James Anthony is Climate Sunday project coordinator, currently on leave as one of our programme coordinators. We wish him well and encourage your own support. To register interest now, please visit the

JUST AND GREEN RECOVERY FOR SCOTLAND

Build back better

As we rebuild from the devastating impacts of coronavirus, we can transform our society for the better. Eco-Congregation Scotland is among eighty organisations calling on the Scottish Government to take five steps for a just and green recovery plan that puts people and planet first:

🚮 Provide good publicly funded services
💷 Provide an adequate income for everyone
🌳 Fund action to cut climate emissions and restore nature
🗳️ Strengthen democracy, participation and human rights
🌍 Support an international coronavirus and climate emergency response

We can’t go back to an economy that destroyed our environment and increased inequality. We must do our fair share of climate action, restore Scotland’s nature and create good, green jobs across the country. We can start that collective action now by letting the Scottish Government know that we can and must Build Back Better. If you agree, please join us in this movement:
