Relay to COP26 – raising awareness of climate change

All Saints Church Harbury were recently pleased to offer hospitality to a team of pilgrims who are raising awareness of Climate Change. The Young Christian Climate Network started their walk from the G7 when it finished in Truro in June and will arrive at the end of October in Glasgow for COP26. And it was a special day for the group as they reached their halfway point.

The pilgrims are on a very circuitous route and passed through the Midlands, from Banbury to Birmingham, in five 1-day stages. The walk is a relay with different people joining the group as it progresses from Truro to Glasgow, and local churches along the way are assisting with hospitality, from lunch to overnight accommodation.

As the YCCN website states: “our brothers and sisters in churches around the world are losing their livelihoods and homes, and we stand with them. Climate-vulnerable countries cannot access finance for adaptation and climate-induced loss and damages without incurring further debt. COP26 is the time to change this. We must hold our government accountable to delivering and exceeding the promised $100bn/year in climate finance”.
