Welcome to our online service for 2nd 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 tell, teach, tend, transform and treasure.
In Week Three of our series, we’ll explore what it means to tend, which the Five Marks of Mission describe as our call “to respond to human need with loving service”. Today’s service is led by our Rector, Revd Vanessa Conant, with a sermon from our Lay Reader, Rob Duddridge, scripture readings from Philip Brook and Coral Gerald, prayers and intercessions from David Baker and an interview with Dr Laura Elgie, a member of St Mary’s who shares the ways in which her faith inspires her to serve.
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. You don’t need a Facebook account to join us at 10.30am, just click here.
We’re also pleased to bring you another brilliant online service for children and families with games, activities, songs and teaching. To access this week’s online children’s service, click here.
