St Aidan's Church on the Manor in Sheffield had a Climate Write In on Sunday 15 June. Some members of the congregation had done a Lent course on the environment and climate change jointly with St Mark's, Broomhill and this was the natural follow up to the course. Michael Bayley preached and after the service over 30 people signed a joint letter to Paul Blomfield the local MP. Several people said that they would also write a letter to him themselves and some said that they would follow it up with a visit to see him and press the issue.
It was encouraging to hear the number of young adults who were really concerned about the issue and would take it up with their contemporaries.
