This week, Teddington Parish's Sustainability Group encourages you to use your voice and to sign The Time Is Now petition.  By signing the petition we are uniting and telling politicians that #TheTimeIsNow to put a cleaner, greener, fairer future at the heart of plans to rebuild a strong economy.

This follows climate-focused services being held across the country over this summer (watch ours from 9 May here) and the collective action and commitment from all local churches will be presented to the UK Government at a Nations Climate Sunday Service in Glasgow on Sunday 5 September 2021, before COP26 in Glasgow in November 2021.

The readings, hymns and prayers for the service were all chosen carefully to celebrate and elevate creation care and climate change and we were delighted to see Father Joe interview our local MP Munira Wilson who attended the service and shared her own personal views on Climate Change and action.

The intention of the service was also to share our Sustainability Declaration and initial 6 month plan of action on climate change and sustainability, to pray and to commit as a Church to action. As such, the Sustainability Group have pledged to help educate and inform the congregation on our response as a Church and on our own personal call to action. The Group will share how we can all actively and positively become involved in the group's mission and intends to share a weekly tip and call to action. To join the group, please email
