Event description
As we approach the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow join us as we search for God's voice amidst all the noise.

About this event

John of the Cross says we should go to the place of need because that is a threshold at which Christ stands. In these talks we try to look for where Christ is in all the noise, we know that no matter how concerning the crisis is Jesus will be there to guide us and give us hope.

This in-person event will take place in Eyre Hall in the Glasgow Archdiocese Offices at 196 Clyde Street in Glasgow at 1pm on Saturday 23rd October 2021.
