Churches Rise-up

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

We hope that you have found this page due to receiving a letter from us, through your local Extinction Rebellion group. Thank you for taking the time to read the letter and choosing to make God’s creation a priority.

What will the 2020 Rebellion involve?

The next big Extinction Rebellion uprising is happening at the end of August and early September. The idea is that from August 28, local groups will be doing actions in their own regions. Then from September 1st, people will galvanise in three main cities (London, Manchester and Cardiff). For more details, click here.

What will Christian Climate Action be doing?

This Lent, before lockdown, we held a 24-hour-a-day vigil outside the Houses of Parliament, and this August, together with people of other faiths, we will gather again there from all parts of the UK for a climate vigil in support of Extinction Rebellion’s protest. For those unable to travel to the capital we will be bearing witness at numerous local Extinction Rebellion actions across the country from 28th August. We would love you to join us in this. We cannot be bystanders. We are required to stand up and plead God’s case before the mountains – to let the hills hear what we have to say.

Engage your Church

We Christians can not stay silent in the face of impending climate collapse. We must stand together as one against the oppressive powers of our time. We have a range of resources, which you can use to engage your church ahead of the September Rebellion. Click here to see the full range – including flyers, posters, workshops and theological reflection. Below we also have some videos of varying lengths, for use in either a short promo in your service, or you can host a film evening. If you would like to contact a member of CCA (for general questions or to ask a speaker to your church), please contact christianclimateaction@gmail.com
