Midweek Discussion Group

Climate Justice: the Mid-Week Discussion Group will be meeting in the TFH at 7:30pm on Wednesday 10th January to consider the topic of climate justice. The climate crisis is driving and worsening poverty. It’s estimated that 130 million people could be pushed into extreme poverty by the climate crisis by 2030. It is one of the great injustices of our time that those least responsible often lack what they need to adapt to or survive such extreme weather events. We will be looking at the topic of climate justice through the lens of Christianity. All welcome to join. Please contact Anthony Archer on anthony.archer@bridgewaterassociates.co.uk or 07721 504125 with any questions.
