Planting Seeds of Hope

Tonight St Martin-in-the-Fields held an evening of silence, prayer and collective action. We joined in solidarity with people across the planet as we fasted and prayed for the climate, leading up to the UN Climate Conference in Paris, December 2015. As a symbolic action, we planted seeds of hope.

Pray and Fast for the Climate is a movement of Christians praying and fasting on the 1st of each month for a meaningful and just global climate agreement at the UN climate talks. They started off in the UK, but now include people from Australia, Canada, Europe and the US. And they hope to grow more – recently the Anglican Communion Bishops’ statement on the environment suggested that all Anglicans worldwide pray and fast on the 1st of the month! Pray and Fast for the Climate is supported by members of the ‘Faith for the Climate’ network.
