Archbishop launches Church of England's first ever Green Lent campaign

RSS

Thousands of people will take action to help tackle Climate Change as part of the Church of England’s first ever official green Lent campaign, launched this week by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

Environmentalists, activists and climate experts gathered at Lambeth Palace for the official launch of LiveLent 2020 - a set of 40 daily reflections, actions and prayers.

Those attending the launch were invited to add personal climate commitments to a ‘pledge-tree’, before a panel of expert climate academics, influencers and activists was chaired by the Archbishop.

#LiveLent 2020 is based on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book, Saying Yes to Life, by Dr Ruth Valerio.

You can find out more about the #LiveLent campaign and sign up to receive the Church of England’s  seasonal reflections by email on the Church of England website here - https://www.churchofengland.org/livelent
