The Methodist hub at COP26
Our friends in Glasgow will offer a warm welcome to visitors to the COP26 in November. They will host events, exhibitions and space to rest at Woodlands Methodist Church. They have created a dedicated website which outlines all that they are doing at this crucial time. You can find it here.
The Church will also host a series of events organised by our young climate activists, all of which will be livestreamed.
Panel discussion - 'What does the Methodist Church itself do about Climate Change?'

During the past year a group of young people from across the globe have been developing a movement of activists within the Church. Climate Justice 4 All (CJ4A) have produced monthly resources and films highlighting the devastating effect that climate change is already having across the world.
The CJ4A Team will be in Glasgow for the duration of the COP26 conference. On 6th and 7th November, they will hold the ‘CJ4A LIVE’ that will take place at Woodlands Methodist Church and will be livestreamed on their social media platforms. This will be the opportunity to share and listen to the voices from around the world, from the workers, volunteers, and partners.
