Pray with us

We are now in a climate emergency. More people are going hungry, extreme weather events are more severe and communities are being displaced. People are being pushed back into poverty and the damage to creation is accelerating.

As we contemplate the scale of the crisis, it’s important we keep our eyes fixed on the God of justice, who loves creation and brings restoration and peace – and help our friends and family to do the same. 

Will you join us in a year of prayer about poverty and climate change?

Prayer in the Park

With two crucial global summits in the UK this year, we have a powerful opportunity to pray for decisions that create a better world for us all – especially the poorest communities across the world. You can use our Prayer in the Park guide to lift up prayers for the climate in your local park or outdoor space. Join in whenever you like, alone or with others (making sure you follow coronavirus restrictions).
