Parish Notices Sunday 25th October 2015

The Rector writes  ‘We will be hearing a lot about Climate Change issues in the media in the lead up to COP21. As we are an Eco Congregation Parish, people may ask us about it so perhaps this might help us understand exactly what it is. France is hosting the ‘21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’ (COP21 for short) in Paris from Nov 30th to Dec 11th. At this crucial conference, those attending will be trying to achieve a new international agreement on the climate, applicable to all countries, with the aim of keeping global warming to below 2°C .  Christians from Paris and surrounding areas, Climate ‘Pilgrims’ from all over the world, Faith Leaders, Agencies and NGOs will also be taking part and we are all being encouraged to support the conference through common prayer.
