St Andrew's Church and Christian Aid
We have teamed up with St Andrew's Church to support Christian Aid and 'RISE TO THE MOMENT'.
Prior to the UN climate summit in November, Christian Aid have set up a campaign, which will involve children making origami boats. Christian Aid is joining with YCCN for an exciting relay across the UK to raise the message of climate justice ahead of COP26. The relay kicked off in Cornwall after the G7 Summit in June and will make its way across the UK until it reaches Glasgow, the host city of COP26, in November. The prayer boat is the start of several ways we can rise to the moment and call for climate justice ahead of COP26.
Making our origami boats, writing a prayer and a promise on how we will support the change needed.
Bleak Hill have created Prayer boats to support Christian Aid, here are some other ideas from the World Wildlife Foundation!
