Welcome to our online service for Sunday 16th May. Today, we finish our series on the Five Marks of Mission which are shared by Anglican churches around the world. These are things we collectively hold to be important in our life as a local, national and global church, and which are most easily remembered by the words tell, teach, tend, transform and treasure.
In Week Five of our series, we’ll be thinking about treasure and what it means to ‘safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth’. Today’s service is led by Revd Dave Edmondson with a sermon from Jess Hall, a campaigns officer for Christian Aid and part of our Just Transition campaign for a greener, fairer London. Our scripture readings are from Jermaine Edwards and Tim Hewitt, Natalie Burwell leads us in our prayers and intercessions, we have special music from Jonathan and Helen Rathbone and we’ll interview Mike Forbes about our new Eco Church project, which will make our buildings and activities more environmentally sustainable.
