Church Times, October 2021, as ‘If sea levels keep rising, we’ll have to make room for the congregation up here’

A CAMPAIGN is growing for church bells to ring out a “code-red warning to humanity” on the eve of the COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow later this month.

“It’s what church bells have traditionally been used for, and the warning couldn’t be more urgent,” said the man behind the idea, Edward Gildea, the Eco Church team leader at St Mary’s, Saffron Walden, in Essex, and a climate-campaign organiser for Christian Aid. “The current threat is greater than the threat of invasion by the Armada, Napoleon, and Hitler rolled into one, as it is a global threat on a vast, possibly uncontrollable scale, in which the prime enemy is ourselves.”
