Rise to the Moment at St George’s

The climate crisis is a storm we all face, but we’re not all in the same boat. For some the storm is stronger and the waves are already breaking.

In November, the UK will host the United Nations key climate talks, COP26. Young Christians Climate Network (YCCN) are working with Christian Aid in leading ‘Rise to the Moment’, a journey of prayer and action in the lead up to COP26 and St George’s is taking part.

A boat is being used as a symbol of our hope that we will rise to the moment and use this year to set sail towards a more just future.

This initiative is being led by the young people of St George’s, with help from Falkland School. We are asking you to make a paper boat that will form part of an art installation in the church. Details of how to make the boats is available via our website here. If you’d like to get involved, boats can be left at the back of church or with the office before 20th October.
