A Rocha UK boosts faith in climate lobby

4 May 2015, Comments Comments Off on A Rocha UK boosts faith in climate lobby

climate lobby 3Faith will be part of the fight against climate change at a major London lobby this month – thanks to A Rocha UK and its partners.

At The Climate Coalition’s ‘Speak Up’ event on 17th June, A Rocha UK is playing a key role in ecumenical services at St Margaret’s Church, Parliament Square, and Emmanuel Centre, Marsham Street. And supporters are being urged to join what could be the single biggest climate lobby in history.

Churches and Theology Director Dr Ruth Valerio and Conservation Director Andy Lester will be part of the team leading worship and prayer – as thousands gather in central London for the mass lobby (pictured is a scene from the previous march). Main speaker at the services will be Bishop of Salisbury Rt Rev Nick Holtam, with contributions from Ruth Valerio, Irish singer-songwriter Andy Flannagan, and staff and partners from other agencies.

Taking place from 12-5.30pm, the ‘Speak Up’ event will be a chance for people to tell the new government they care about the affects of climate change – and that they want to protect all they hold dear. A special guide is available here.
