Christian Aid Service of Reflection 2021

From Darkness to Light

Online – Tuesday 2 November 5.30pm

You are warmly invited to a special online service of reflection on All Souls’ Day.

We have all been through such enormous change and loss in these last, nearly two years, especially those who have lost a loved one.

The service is a time for us to come together in a moment of comfort, hope and solidarity to remember those who lit up our lives.

We will also honour our supporters who have generously left a gift in their Will for Christian Aid’s work and celebrate the lives of loved ones, in whose memory donations have been made. In their name, we continue to challenge injustice and fight poverty.

During the service, we will give thanks to God. It will also mark our gratitude to so many people, for their faith and kindness in supporting Christian Aid’s work.

We will present the names of loved ones being remembered on screen during the service. Should you wish, you are welcome to share a loved one’s name for inclusion through the sign-up form.

The service will last approximately 40 minutes and will feature an address from our Chair, Dr Rowan Williams, Chief Executive Amanda Mukwashi, and other contributors from across the Christian Aid community

Faith, Hope and Climate Change

Trinity College Glasgow invites Church Groups across the UK and Ireland to join our FREE 7 Week Countdown to COP26 Course, “Faith, Hope + Climate Change”.

The United Nations Climate Change Conference is coming to Glasgow in November 2021. Already, world leaders are being challenged on the commitments they will make in The Glasgow Statement. We are inviting you to use part of your 2021 home group, youth group, or Bible study group programme to join with others across the UK and Ireland in listening for God’s call as we face up to the Climate Emergency.

15th Sept to 27th Oct 2021

This course will take place online on Wednesday evenings, 7-9pm BST.​

This year, Glasgow will host COP26. Emphasising community action, the conference seeks to bring global powers “together for our planet”. For many Christians this is an important and much anticipated event.

We feel called to fulfil our duty of care towards the creation which God called ‘good’, and every living thing. Come November, however, many of us will sit as onlookers to the conference, frustrated to be so distant from the action.

Christian Aid COP26 Breakfast Briefings

Join together with other church leaders to hear about what climate justice will look like at COP26.

The church in the UK and around the world has a crucial role to play in influencing political leaders to be ambitious in taking steps to end the climate crisis.

Christian Aid is hosting three virtual breakfast briefings specifically for church leaders to demystify climate campaigning jargon, ground the issues in stories of lived experience and provide a platform for voices from the Global South.

Join us to hear how you and your church can take action for climate justice.

All briefings will take place on Zoom from 8.30-9.30am:
31 August: All Creation groaning – understanding our asks of world leaders
28 September: ‘I’m a church leader – what’s COP got to do with me?’
26 October: Voices from the global church – how our sisters and brothers are responding
