ADVOCACY

The communities that make up the Anglican Communion seek to organise their mission around what are known as The Five Marks of Mission.

The Five Marks of Mission:
The mission of the Church is the mission of Christ

  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

Marks 4 and 5 commit us to being involved in making the world a better place through the pursuit of justice, enabling human flourishing and protecting the planet.
The St John’s Community takes this call seriously and has adopted its own Social Justice Statement:
St John’s Cathedral is committed to the principles of social and eco justice.
                       We actively pursue just outcomes for all.
