Ring out for Climate Change!
October 30 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Our Diocese has requested that we encourage as many of our TDGR members to be able to ring their bells at 6pm on the 30th of October for 30 minutes (or longer).
Bishop Hugh writes:
“I would be delighted if church bells were to be rung across the Diocese to mark the beginning of COP26. COP26 is a critical moment for the whole of creation, with decisions to be made that will affect whether people and nature have a chance of avoiding the worst effects of climate change, decisions that will have the greatest impact on the poorest and most vulnerable communities around the world.
Churches in Cornwall were very involved in the G7 meeting, which took place here in June, sending the leaders off to Glasgow with our prayers and encouragement. I would welcome church bells ringing to welcome the wider group of countries and groups who will be at COP26, as well as ringing our alarm at the emergency before us.”
We however recognise that not every incumbent maybe happy with this, so we encourage TCs to ask and have the conversation.
A great excuse for arranging a call change performance or quarter peal! If you do, please put them on Bellboard, so we can include them in the guild performance reports.
Again, this is another excuse and opportunity to advertise why you are ringing to your local community and invite local people to find out more about ringing and maybe even start to learn!
