Hilfield friary will feature in the “God’s Planet” edition of Songs of Praise, this Sunday (7th Nov) at 13.15 on BBC1.
“With the United Nations COP26 negotiations taking place in Glasgow, Claire McCollum joins Christians raising awareness of climate change and urging us all to take action to prevent it. In Gateshead and Newcastle, Yolanda Brown joins pilgrims from the Young Christians Climate Network during their five-month walking relay from Cornwall to Glasgow.”
“Environmental campaigner Laura Young shows Claire a zero-waste shop and explains how the way we buy everyday goods can make a big difference. Glasgow-based artist ID Campbell tells Claire how his Christian faith, and COP26, inspired him to paint three new portraits that he has since partially destroyed as a symbol of the destruction brought about by climate change. The Franciscan community of Hilfield Friary in Dorset show how their sustainable practices and carbon-reducing measures have won a gold award from renowned Christian environmental charity A Rocha UK.”
