Praying for Our Planet

Praying for Our Planet is a thought-provoking programme of seven weekday evening talks on Zoom. At each, a scientist whose work relates to the current climate and ecological emergency, and who is also a Christian, will speak about their area of interest and how their scientific understanding affects the way they pray – what they pray for and how they express those prayers. Following the talk, the audience will be invited to divide into breakout rooms to reflect and respond to what the speaker has said.
The sessions are free, open to all and do not require any pre-existing knowledge of the topics. They will on weekday evenings through May and June. 
Bramhall Methodist Church are hosting these as part of their Climate
Year and in partnership with Greater Manchester Churches Together.
