Faith leaders have joined together to demand climate action ahead of the COP26 meeting in Glasgow.

The Glasgow Multi-Faith Declaration, signed by representatives of religious communities across the United Kingdom, calls for people to be “advocates for justice” ahead of the COP summit.

The Revd Clare Downing and Peter Pay, Moderators of the General Assembly of the United Reformed Church (URC), the Revd Paul Whittle, Moderator of the URC National Synod of Scotland, and the Revd David Coleman, URC minister and Chaplain to Eco-Congregation Scotland made the declaration alongside leaders of every major Christian denomination and representatives from Baha’i, Buddhist, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Muslim, and Sikh communities.

At last Sunday’s Church Meeting we presented the work that has been going on to write our new Pastorate Profile.  First we reminded the meeting of the process that we need to follow to find a new minister for Trinity.  We then presented the main themes of the Pastorate Profile – a long and detailed document which has to be submitted to the Southern Synod before the vacancy can be declared.

This document is now complete and you can see the PowerPoint presentation here.  It will now be sent to the South London Synod Area Pastoral Committee as the next step.

Thanks to all those members who attended the important meeting and contributed to the process.
