Please make a pledge to take a small action to tackle climate change. The link gives suggestions of several climate actions you can do from home, and you will also probably think of lots more.
- Just choose a pledge
- Write it down anonymously
- Put it in the box which will be located on the table at the Church entrance
All pledges received will be displayed on a notice board in the Church lobby during the Big Green Week.
We will also be inviting all members to bring a vegetarian lunch to church on Sunday the 19th September which we will share from 12.00 after the service. Please try and use as many local products as you can.

The Great Big Green Week
In September communities across the country will join together for The Great Big Green Week (18 – 26 September), being organised by The Climate Coalition, of which A Rocha UK is a member. This year’s week will have a particular focus on the links between climate change and nature. It will be the biggest event for climate and nature ever in the UK. A Rocha UK is joining with other members of The Climate Coalition and inviting our supporters to host events and activities across the UK. This will be an opportunity to raise the profile of climate change and how it is affecting nature and people, and the places we love, right here in the UK and across the world.
The week will produce a loud and timely call for action on climate change and nature. The idea is to show our communities, local decision makers and the UK government that it’s time for much bolder action on both, in the run up to COP26. Everyone can write to their MP: You can find more information on how to contact your MP and what to say here and sign up here to receive notifications for events happening near you.
A Rocha UK are keen to equip our supporters to raise their voices for the environment ahead of COP26. On 24 September 2021, during the Great Big Green Week, we’re inviting A Rocha UK’s supporters and our Wild Christian community to meet online for a first, pilot ‘Campaign Friday’ event. Experienced campaigner (and also CEO of A Rocha UK), Andy Atkins will speak on why Christians should campaign; we’ll point towards some key nature related campaigns; and – for those who want – we’ll take part in them right there and then! More details to follow on our events webpage here and in next month’s eNews.
