20 May - Revd John Kime at Durham Cathedral

UPDATE: From Newcastle to Durham and beyond!

Today John left Newcastle and, facing strong gusty, blustery and wet conditions cycled south. Passing the Angel of The North sculpture and onto Durham Cathedral, he joined their Communion Service. He met with the Revd John Square, Deputy Chair of the Darlington Methodist District and delivered the letter on Climate Change Action. Coincidentally, Darlington Methodists had just held a discussion about needing a policy on Climate Change.

Having completed 33 miles John is scheduled, weather permitting, to head for Ripon Cathedral tomorrow (Friday 21st May).

Revd John Kime is cycling 2000 miles up and across England bearing a letter from the Methodist Church's Bristol District Chair, the Revd Dr Jonathan Pye, highlighting the urgent issue of climate change and climate justice.

The letter calls to support actions which will care for creation in a proactive way, lobby the Government which is hosting the COP 26 talks in Glasgow for lasting commitments to care for our planet, and for individuals to take steps 'to tread more lightly upon this earth'.
