Dear Friends,

I hope that you have had a good September, and have managed to celebrate the Season of Creation in some way. It seems bizarre to think that whilst members of communities all around the country are trying to do things to help the climate in their own little way, we have a Government that seems to be reneging on their climate promises. More about that in the Climate Section below – and I make no apologies that again the main focus is on the Climate.

We have a very important Action of the Week with a deadline of this Thursday, the 5th October at 12 Noon. Please note it is for senior and local UK Church leaders from any denomination or independent church, as well as open to members of UK Catholic and Anglican religious orders, heads of lay communities and senior leaders of UK-based Christian charities. 

Last Saturday we gathered in Birmingham for our Open Networking Day on The Windrush Generation. It was a very interesting day, and Ann Farr’s report on it is linked below. To me, though, the great thing about these days is meeting with like-minded people and hearing about the good work that is going on elsewhere. There is always something to be learned from both the speakers and the attendees.

The next edition will again be in three weeks time, around the weekend of the 14th/15th October. If you are wanting anything advertised in the next edition, please make sure that I receive the information by Friday 13th October. Many thanks to those of you who send articles in.

Stay safe, and have a good few weeks,
