On Sunday 29th August 2021 thirteen Christians were arrested at St Paul’s Cathedral whilst demanding that the Church of England divests from fossil fuels in order to tackle the climate emergency.

The day before the following letters were sent:

46 letters were sent to the 21 Dioceses, the Church Commissioners and the Church Pensions Board still investing in fossil fuels urging them to divest immediately.

36 letters were sent to the 18 dioceses not investing in fossil fuels urging them to announce their divestment and to commit to no further fossil fuel investment.

6 letters were sent to the 3 dioceses who have announced divestment urging them to call on the other dioceses to do the same.

This film features activists from Christian Climate Action and integrates a new poem by Sue Hampton written after the action at St Paul's Cathedral which took place during Extinction Rebellion's 'The Impossible Rebellion'.

Eucharist - St Paul’s
By Sue Hampton

Jewelled to sky
the dome rises on
in painted echoes,
as if to guide beyond trappings to clear blue truth,
its vaunted space
flowered by song
reaching sunward
like jasmine breath,
A choir through fire.
Detecting quickened rhythm in familiar chests
I turn time's pages
slow and stilled.
We wait.
The wine's burn lingers
as we break cover,
a thin procession
with banners concertinad from backpacks
around the dais.
NO FAITH IN FOSSIL FUELS,
CHURCHES DIVEST.
Uncovered, the cross
and hourglass bind us together.
From the pulpit
the words we chose
swell and swim
through silence.
Heart full,
absorbing welcome,
I open eyes on applause,
unsuspecting that police
are on their way.
"Hello, Susan, all right?"
Tall in black, the officer's
in charge,
wants us gone
by Church request.
Though we turn no tables,
no further congregations
will be admitted
while we remain.
Like a flock at gunshot
the gratitude for our
reminder
has taken flight.
Billions my head can't hold
could fund life,
could warm without inferno.
We stay,
letters in the post and
arms linked,
offer the police cordon
Amazing Grace,
words fudged but line held
in quietest soar.
The glue I hid
has sealed
connections now.
Outside they expect a stream
of burdens lifted
in sacrifice
