Important: This event has already occurred.
- 10:00AM - 1:00PM
- St James', Cordova at Gore in Vancouver/ (march begins at Science World site)
Have you been looking for ways to respond to climate change? Have you been looking for ways to engage in climate action with a community of believers? We invite you to explore two avenues of engagement with us on April 29: prayer and civic engagement. You are free to participate in one area, or both, as you feel called to.
Earthkeepers is hosting a Pre-Rally Communion Service for Climate Justice on Saturday, April 29th. It will be a time of prayer and centering followed by an ecologically-focused Communion meal. We will then be joining Climate Convergence Metro Vancouver in the People's Climate March: Job, Justice, and Climate.
The Communion meal allows us to remember the one whose brokenness heals our lives. Only then, anew with Christ, can we return to our world’s healing.
Will you join us on April 29 at St. James' Anglican Church? Bring your motivation for marching to our sign-making session, join us later for the Communion and prayer service, or finally — meet us at the march at Science World.
