COP28 candle-lit vigil

24 November, 2023 @ 6:30 pm

Friday 24th November 6.30pm Newbury Market Place There will be a Vigil to mark the start of the crucial COP 28 meeting of world leaders. If you are concerned about the climate and biodiversity crisis please come along.

The Vigil will begin by groups gathering at 6pm at St John’s Church (South) and St Joseph’s Church (North) and at other locations around the town. The groups will then process by lantern and candlelight from various points in the town and everyone will converge together in the Market Place for 6.30pm where there will be readings and poems and reflections etc. to mark the start of this important COP28 event.  It should be a beautiful and memorable action and hopefully will make a lasting impression on those witnessing it.

If you are not able to join one of the groups at 6pm please go straight to the Market Place for 6.30pm.
