Church leaders from across the UK have taken to social media to share their thoughts and prayers as the COP26 climate summit starts in Glasgow.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rt Rev Justin Welby has said radical action is needed as the outcome of the summit will be "life or death for millions of people" but is hopeful there is just about time to avoid a catastrophe.
He Tweeted: “We still, just, have time to follow God in the work of restoration, transformation and reconciliation with our planet.
“The peoples of the world need their leaders to decide now on the necessary action.
“Reconciliation with the creation proclaims the friendship of Christ, opens us to relationship with one another, and obeys God the Creator.
“Jesus teaches us there are no greater commandments than to love God and love our neighbour.
“To keep those commandments as Christians today, we must step up to the challenge of climate change.”
Gavin Calver, the CEO of the Evangelical Alliance also tweeted: “Praying for all those gathering for #COP26.
“This is such an important moment for the planet as ways to deal with the very significant #ClimateEmergency are considered. Every one of us needs our leaders to decide now on swift, timely & vital action.”
The Young Christian Climate Network activists also arrived in Glasgow after walking 1,200 miles from Cornwall.
They embarked on an ecumenical pilgrimage for climate justice called ‘Raise to the Moment’, which started back in June during the G7 meeting.
The group concluded their pilgrimage with a special church service.
