Our Mission

The Anglican Communion has identified these 5 Marks of Mission:

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

Some of the ways our parish pursues these marks of mission include: ministry to the bereaved; care and support for the sick and infirm; pastoral care; ministry in nursing homes; ministry to children (Sunday School, SRE); child sponsorship; Christian education programmes; and support for welfare services and agencies, locally and internationally.
