Churches ring out for climate action

On the eve of #cop26🌍 the bells at St John’s, Hale, will be ringing out at 6pm tonight as part of a national church call for action on the climate emergency.

Church bells have traditionally been rung to mark significant moments, both in times of celebration, such as victory in war, and as a warning of impending danger, such as invasion. The climate crisis is one of great impending danger and the bells on the eve of the COP26 are a warning symbol, but also one of hope that the conference will lead to action.
