Blow the trumpet in Zion; sanctify a fast; call a solemn assembly; gather the people.
The Ash Wednesday Climate Justice Forum is a gathering of Anglicans from throughout Australia and our Region to discuss how the Anglican Church is responding to the challenges of climate change.
Parts of the Anglican Church are already confronting people forced to leave their homes, food and water shortages, and increased risk from natural disasters. Other parts of the church are working to increase awareness and understanding of climate change in order to build consensus for a shared response.
The Ash Wednesday Climate Justice Forum will be facilitated by the Anglican Alliance. Outcomes from the forum will be directed to the 2016 meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council.
This is an invitation to anyone interested in the conversation about Climate Justice who is connected with the Anglican Church. We are particularly seeking to gather people involved with Social Responsibilities groups and anyone active around issues of public theology within their diocese or local mission context.
The Ash Wednesday Climate Justice Forum is open to anyone associated with the Anglican Church. The forum is organised by the Anglican Alliance, the global Anglican coordinating body for Development, Relief and Advocacy. It is supported by the Anglican Church of Australia Public Affairs Commission, the Anglican Board of Mission – Australia, Anglican Overseas Aid and Trinity College Theological School.
Registration is required and places are limited. There is no cost for attending. Lunch will be provided.
