Mission

A group talk through where they see God at workThe mission of the Church is the mission of Christ.

Across the world, the Christian Church believes this is seen when Christians demonstrate these five 'marks' of mission:Five painted hands to show togetherness and collaboration

  • To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom;
  • To teach, baptise and nurture new believers;
  • To respond to human need by loving service;
  • To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation;
  • To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth.

"Mission is finding out what God is doing and joining in"
