Stitches for Survival local groups from Leeds and Aire Valley have a spectacular display on at the iconic York Minster until 28th September.
We join a special season of services, events and webinar debates put on by York Minster highlighting the accelerating global climate and environment emergency, throughout September and October.
Taken from a York Minster News Release:
The season will also anticipate the crucial COP 26 UN Climate Change Summit in Glasgow (31 October – 12 November), regarded by many as the final wake up call for world leaders to follow through on their commitments protect the environment to avert a catastrophic climate crisis.
Canon Maggie McLean, Canon Missioner at York Minster said:
“There can be no doubt that the global climate emergency is the most serious challenge of all time and it is getting closer and closer to home.
“We have put together this season of events and special services to reflect on the climate challenges we face together and explore how we can respond faithfully through prayer and action. Speakers from across the world will consider our place in creation, explore theologies of creation and will consider the climate emergency as the primary justice issue of our age.”
Please visit the York Minster by the end of the month to see the beautiful Stitches display and more!
