THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY HERE SEEKS TO:
• pray and to offer worship through the spoken word and through music
• proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ and to encourage others to be committed to this aim
• encourage a deeper awareness of God and understanding of His Church
• care for the people of this Parish and for all who come as worshippers and visitors
• help those in need locally and elsewhere
• maintain a beauty of holiness by caring for the fabric of the church buildings
• pray that God’s peace may dwell here and that all who come may leave feeling the better for their having been here

IN MISSION WE MAKE THE GOOD NEWS KNOWN AS WE:
• Witness to Christ’s healing, forgiving and reconciling love for all and build loving and transforming communities of faith.
• Stand in solidarity with the poor and needy and challenge injustice and oppression.
• Protect, care for and renew all life and be good stewards of our planet.


OUR UNIVERSAL MISSION STATEMENT
