Mission


Child gardeningThe Church of England expresses its mission in five key ways - often these are known as the 'Five Marks of Mission': 

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

However, we are learning today that mission today requires a deeper process than listing five ‘T’s – which is where Missional Learning Communities come in.
