Sunday Service: Fourth Mark of Mission (9/5)

Welcome to our online service for Sunday 9th May. Today, we continue 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 tellteachtendtransform and treasure.

In Week Four of our series, we explore what it means to transform, which the Five Marks of Mission describe as our call to “transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation”. Today’s service is led by our Rector, Revd Vanessa Conant, with a sermon from our Church Planter, Charnelle Barclay, a scripture reading from Jen Powell, prayers from Dom Withers, music from Jonathan and Helen Rathbone and an interview with Averil Pooten-Watan, church warden of St Barnabas, Walthamstow, and a leader in our Waltham Forest Citizens’ housing campaign.

While you can watch our pre-recorded service whenever is convenient for you by clicking this link, you are also invited to join us at 10.30am this morning as we live-stream the service to our Facebook page, with some portions of the service delivered live, others pre-recorded.
