This year, we have seen significant developments in responding to the climate crisis. From Extinction Rebellion to school strikes for the climate, leading to the UK Parliament and Scottish and Welsh governments declaring a climate emergency. Churches in the UK have taken steps forward on fossil fuel divestment, and the United Reformed Church voted unanimously to divest in May.
Thousands of people are meeting their MPs this month to discuss the UK government’s response to the climate emergency. How can we increase the urgency of action?
Operation Noah’s annual gathering is a great opportunity to meet others, get inspired and share ideas on responding to the climate emergency in our churches, locally and on a national level.
We are delighted that our keynote speaker will be Hannah Malcolm, winner of the Church Times’ Theology Slam. Hannah is also coordinator for God and the Big Bang. This is a national project helping children, young people and teachers engage with the dialogue between science and faith. Prior to moving to Manchester Hannah lived and worked at Hilfield Friary, the first recipient of the Eco Church Gold Award in the UK.
