What is the Young Christian Climate Network (YCCN) Relay?

Young Christian Climate Network is an action-focused community of young Christians in the UK aged 18-30, choosing to follow Jesus in the pursuit of climate justice. As we look ahead to November’s COP26 climate negotiations taking place in Glasgow, Young Christian Climate Network are organising a relay pilgrimage from Cornwall to Glasgow to show we care about climate justice and creation care.

As part of the Relay up to Glasgow, a number of events are taking place at different churches around London between 5 - 8 August 2021, before the next leg heads onto Birmingham. The Diocese of Westminster is hosting an event on Friday 6 August, 1 - 4pm, as part of the Journey to COP26. Please join us with your presence in supporting the Young Christian Climate Network Relay Pilgrimage. All ages welcome!

Join us on Friday 6 August

We will gather at 1pm at Farm Street Church W1K 3AH, for a vegan lunch and blessing. This will be a chance to meet some of the Relay pilgrimage walkers and hear about their experiences so far, then at 2pm we will all walk together (approx. 45 mins) to Westminster Cathedral where a short Ecumenical Climate Prayer Service will take place.

Please bring your CAFOD t-shirts (we can provide you with one if needed, just let us know) and wear comfortable shoes.

This will be an afternoon of action, prayer, and reflection. Join us in supporting #RisetotheMoment.

If you able to join us on Friday 6 August, or would like more details, please email Kate Eastmond: keastmond@cafod.org.uk.
