The September Rebellion was such a privilege to be a part of. It was inspiring seeing people putting aside time from their busy schedules to prioritise our future – to prioritise life as we know it.
The September Rebellion may have now come to a close but there is still lots to do. So what now?
FIRST STEP – If you have been moved by the rebellion, we would love for you to get involved in Christian Climate Action. There is a place for everyone.
You can sign up to the newsletter by clicking here, so that you receive updates for how to get more involved. We also have a regular rhythm of zoom meetings – morning prayer meetings every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 9am, working group meetings every Wednesday at 18:30pm and theological study groups every Saturday morning at 11am. Attending these is a great way to embed yourself into the CCA community and get involved in what we do. To see descriptions of these meetings and the zoom links for joining here, click here.
CCA also runs some one off events – the majority of which are currently online. You can find out about these upcoming events by clicking here.
SECOND STEP – One of the main aims of the September Rebellion was pushing for MPs to back the CEE Bill.
What is the CEE Bill?
We know we are in an emergency and that the government isn’t doing enough.
The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill can change our course—making the government act with the urgency we need and involving everyday people in a Citizens’ Assembly that has real bite. If the CEE Bill is made law, the government would have to act fast, accounting for our entire carbon footprint while actively conserving nature here and overseas. We hope that this bill will set a precedent that can be replicated across the world.
The CEE Bill is a brand new initiative starting on its path as a grassroots campaign to build an alliance around this proposed law. It has been developed with members of XR alongside members of the successful Big Ask campaign that led to the Climate Change Act in 2008.
We need the support of as many MPs as possible so that the bill can move forward—so politicians need to step up. Call on your MP to back the CEE Bill!

Now that the September Rebellion is over, its time to lobby your MP about the CEE Bill and ask that they back it.
