Young members join climate crisis working group

September 16, 2020

The latest Provincial Youth Newsletter is now available, packed with news of what young members have been up to and highlighting that two of them have joined the working group tasked with co-ordinating the Scottish Episcopal Church’s response to the climate crisis.

Caitlin Conway, pictured below, and Martha Spence, pictured above, are both Glen delegates who are passionately committed to protecting the planet, and they are looking forward to joining with the Primus, Church Relations Officer Miriam Weibye and the rest of the group on this vitally important issue.

The newsletter also features young people leading Provincial Worship with the Primus and Most Rev Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of The American Episcopal Church, the launch of the Climate Justice Campaign, support and training for young Servers, and Now What? — an online event designed to help youth workers reflect, think and dream about their youth ministry vision in a COVID-19 world.

But the main focus is on the successful hosting of Provincial Youth Week, held online for the first time. Under the themes of Worshipping Together, Eating Together, Meeting Together and Having Fun Together, the Glen 20 delegates enjoyed a fulfilling programme of events which included discussion of this year’s Heroes? theme, a murder mystery, and a scavenger hunt (pictured above).

And as part of a care package which delegates received before the event, each participant was given a special mug, inscribed inside with a message of Bible-based words of encouragement as they head into the uncertainty of going back to school, start university or enter into the world of work during a pandemic.

The newsletter, which features these stories in full plus a host of great photos, can be accessed by clicking here.
