Also on 13 December, participants at the UN conference have been invited to pray alongside the Danish Queen and church leaders from around the world in an ecumenical celebration at Copenhagen's Lutheran Cathedral. Archbishop Rowan Williams will be the preacher. The service will be broadcast live on Danish television and on the website of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. You are invited to join in these prayers in your own way, uniting with Christians around the world in supporting those who are to make decisions in Copenhagen, which will affect our lives and the life of our planet.
The Revd Jonathan LLoyd, the chaplain of our parish of St Alban's Copenhagen, is bringing together a team of Franciscan brothers and sisters who will be a praying presence at St Alban's throughout the days of the summit. I will be privileged to be in Copenhagen as part of the Archbishop of Canterbury's suite.
A joint letter to European Christians from the Conference of European Churches and the (Roman Catholic) Council of European Bishops' Conferences, promoting this initiative, can be found here. An announcement with more information can also be found on our diocesan website.
