Welcome to City United Reformed Church
We are an Open and Inclusive Christian congregation, made up of and welcoming people from all communities regardless of race, colour, gender, age, nationality, economic circumstance, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability or emotional condition.
SHOW THE LOVE
The Climate Coalition’s SHOW THE LOVE campaign is about using our voices to protect what
we love from the impacts of climate change. The time is now to use the power of green hearts to
drive action on the climate crisis. By getting creative, we can ask our politicians to put aside
their differences and work for a healthier, cleaner, fairer world.
Later this year, the UK is hosting the UN Climate Conference COP 26. This is the most
important international summit we have ever hosted. What gets decided in Glasgow will define
the world that our children inherit. COP 26 is an opportunity for the UK to lead the world into a
greener future, but first we must ensure that our own recovery gets us on track to net-zero
emissions and to limiting global warming to below 1.5 degrees C.
By making, wearing and displaying green hearts and by sharing a green heart with our MP, we
can raise awareness and call on our politicians and the government to take urgent and ambitious
Contacting your MP and MS:
Each year constituents across the UK send hundreds of green hearts to their MPs. Your green
heart is your personal message to your MP or MS asking them to commit to a green recovery
that tackles the climate crisis. Please see the attached notes for ideas and guidance on writing to
your MP/MS and a list of constituency office addresses.
The Time Is Now Declaration:
As part of Show the Love and ahead of COP 26, the Climate Coalition is encouraging people in
every corner of the UK to sign The Time Is Now Declaration. The Declaration calls on the
Prime Minister to lead the UK and the world towards a healthier, greener, fairer future.
Please sign the Declaration and ask your MP and MS to sign as well.
Please remember to keep in touch with us and each other.
