Vigil for COP


South Bank Churches and the Diocese of Southwark invite people of all faiths for a time of prayer for the success of COP26, the international conference on climate change in Glasgow.


You're encouraged to make a pilgrimage on foot, by bike, by public transport, however you wish, from your place of worship - perhaps in a group - to Southwark Cathedral, arriving between 2 - 3pm. Bring a Letter for Creation to pass on to the faith leaders involved in COP.


There will be interactive prayer stations from 2pm. At 3.20 we will come together for a time of prayer and reflection with singer Samantha Lindo and St Leonard’s Eco Church Community, ending with a blessing by the Bishop of Kingston.


You can see or download the programme for the day, including details of the prayer stations and the Act of Prayer here


The Vigil will be livestreamed, starting at 3.10 pm.  To watch the service online, here is the link:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCal1PTQIUohMqybIc9Lipkw/live
