Join in climate justice relay to COP26
It's not long until the Young Christian Climate Network - Relay to COP26 arrives in our diocese and we'd love as many people as possible to be involved!
Young people will be striding out for climate justice in the Welsh leg of a 1,000 mile relay to Glasgow ahead of the UN COP26 summit.
People of all ages are invited to join them on the 10-day walk which begins in Swansea on July 3 and ends 125 miles later in Bristol on July 12. It is part of a UK-wide relay to Glasgow, organised by the Young Christian Climate Network, which began during the G7 Summit in Cornwall last month.
Walkers of any age are welcome but under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Here are the options for the days in our diocese:
8th July - Walk the 13 miles between Cardiff and Newport, stopping at St Teilos CiW High School, ending with a welcome event at the Cathedral with MSs, MPs and the CiW Climate Champion, Julia Edwards.
9th July - Walk the 12 miles between the Cathedral and Magor, stopping in Nash, following the costal path with a welcome service in St Mary's Magor.
10th July - Walk the 10 miles between Magor and Chepstow, stopping in Caldicot, with a welcome service at St Mary's Chepstow.
11th July - Walk the 12 miles between Chepstow and Bradley Stoke, starting with a breakfast BBQ and being accompanied by local school children to wave the main group off over the bridge.

We're specifically looking for a lead walker for the Cardiff to Newport section on Thursday the 8th, you would just be the main point of contact for walkers that day, you can find out more about the role here here or email Libby, firstname.lastname@example.org
If you don't want to walk but would still like to be involved, could you sign up to be on-call support? You would transport bags on the day and help out if a walker gets injured and needs to be transported off route. Find out more about the role here
