If you’re passionate about our planet and want to add your support to the environmental agenda at the COP26 (UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties) join us in a pilgrimage towards Glasgow.
From 13 to 17 August, pilgrims will be walking through the Diocese of Gloucester, to connect with the Young Christian Climate Network’s national pilgrimage.
The length of the route each day will be somewhere between 7-11 miles, and each day will start with active prayer led by the OneLife Team and end with cake and closing prayers.
Walkers of all ages are welcome, including family groups, individuals and groups from communities and churches. Make sure you’re wearing sturdy shoes and are able to walk the distance each day you join us.
The national Young Christian Climate Network relay walk began in Cornwall, the location of the June G7 summit, and is continuing onwards to Glasgow, where in November, world leaders are meeting for the critical COP26 climate talks.
The relay aims to raise public awareness and engage churches and local communities. The main route doesn’t pass through our area but our ‘tributary’ joins the main route. After our five days, we hand over to friends and colleagues in Worcester Diocese to take our tributary onwards to Birmingham.
