Christian Aid are urging us to continue to love our neighbour by supporting their Big Shift campaign. This urges investors to move money out of fossil fuels, which drive climate change, and into sustainable energy that can help all God's people to flourish. So you are invited to click the link below and sign this petition to David Cameron:

Dear Prime Minister,
Thank you for being part of the historic UN climate deal in Paris last December. Please ensure the UK does all it can to keep global temperature rises below 1.5 degrees to protect communities in Bangladesh and across the world. Specifically please:

  • ensure UK overseas aid helps build resilience to climate change in the world's poorest countries and commit 10% of humanitarian aid to helping communities prepare for disasters.
  • make the Big Shift out of fossil fuels to 100% clean energy within a generation.
    The warning signs are increasingly evident, with devastating flooding in the UK and South Asia, and drought in Ethiopia. Please act now for a safer future. Thank you.

    Please click here to support this from the Christian Aid website. And thank you.
