Join with Christians from across these lands now called Australia to pray for creation and climate justice.
Gathering with others to pray for change is a wonderful thing. We pray to ask God to guide us with wisdom, give us courage to act and help us follow Jesus’ call to love our neighbours.
This online prayer vigil will be held the night before the #FundOurFutureNotGas actions and in support of School Strike 4 Climate and the Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network, to respond to the voices of the younger generations crying out for climate justice.
Aboriginal Christian leaders have historically called prayer gatherings prior to a march or rally and then cover the event in prayer during the march or rally. In this tradition we seek to watch, pray and act together and online.
Register to the right and you will be emailed after 2pm on Thursday 24 September with a link to join the online prayer vigil. The vigil will take place using Zoom.
Date and Time: Thursday 24 September 7pm - 8.30pm

Holding a vigil space
Our vigil will be live and participatory. Joining from our homes we will create and hold a space for our prayers, together.
We invite you to turn on your camera so you are visually present, and place something special in view. This could be a candle, a plant, flowers, a cloth, an object or symbol that is important to you as you watch, pray and act on creation care and climate justice. You might also like to have a beloved pet with you.
