Prayer Vigil for COP26

The UN climate talks in Glasgow this year – COP 26 – offer a chance for the global community to move the Paris Agreement to the next stage. It’s an important moment – and one that needs a lot of prayer!

Isabel Carter has created all you need to hold a prayer vigil. The materials are flexible, so if you have a short amount of time – or a long one – you can use them to plan your service.
