Climate Fringe Week

18 – 26 September 2021

During Climate Fringe Week we join with civil society groups across Scotland to celebrate and support all the ways you can engage in climate activism; be that as part of an organisation, with your friends, family or wider community.

With COP26 coming to Glasgow, this is a key time to bring about climate action and the Scottish voice should be louder than ever.

Creation Calls the Tune (Part 2)

It’s often said that our faith is shaped by what we sing, so in this time of climate crisis it’s increasingly important that we sing songs which connect with creation and the environment.

This zoom event will be led by songwriters and musicians and introduce songs which we can sing in church during Creation Time, in the lead up to COP26, and all year round.

We will hear from John Bell of the Iona Community, Joel Payne of Resound Worship and Iain McLarty of the Church of Scotland about songs in a range of styles, and from across the world, which we can sing and the stories behind them. All are welcome – no musical experience required!

Thursday 26th of August 2021 from 7.30- 9pm

Creation Calls the Tune (part 1)


Awareness about environmental concerns and the climate crisis is at an all time high in churches, but how much is that reflected in our worship?

In this webinar we will hear from David Coleman (Environmental Chaplain, Eco-Congregation Scotland), Kathy Galloway (formerly Head of Christian Aid Scotland and the Iona Community, now writer and editor), and Wendy Lloyd (Faith Communications Coordinator, Christian Aid).

They will share resources which you can use in your congregation and help us explore deeper questions about how our worship and spirituality relate to our care for creation and desire for climate justice. All are welcome, whether you’re a worshiper, a worship leader, or if this is all totally new to you.

Join us via Zoom on Tuesday 17th of August 7.30pm – 9pm
