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 are being hosted by Bramhall Methodist Church as part of their Climate Year and in partnership with Greater Manchester Churches Together. They will be at 7:30pm (until 9:15) on weekday evenings through May and June 2021.
