Autumn Sermon Series: The Five Marks of Mission
The five marks of mission have been developed by the Anglican Consultative Council since 1984. Since then they have been widely adopted as an understanding of what contemporary mission is about. The mission of the Church is the mission of Christ:
To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom (TELL)
To teach, baptise and nurture new believers (TEACH)
To respond to human need by loving service (TEND)
To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation (TRANSFORM)
To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth (TREASURE)

We have returned the number of our St Andrew’s mission partners to ten by adopting A Rocha UK as part of our Eco Church programme. A Rocha UK is part of the wider A Rocha International movement, with a vision to inspire and enable churches and individual Christians to look after God’s creation. They do this through their hands-on ventures (such as the Wolf Fields Nature Reserve in Slough), partnering with Christians and Christian organisations to protect and improve land and habitats they own, and encouraging churches to get involved through the Eco Church programme, Climate Sunday and other initiatives.
We are very pleased to have Andy Atkins, Chief Executive of A Rocha UK, to preach at church on Sunday 17th October. It will be a great opportunity to broaden our understanding of the fifth Mark of Mission “Treasure: To Safeguard and Care for Creation”, to learn more about A Rocha and to be challenged as to what we can be doing in the run up to COP26 in Glasgow in November.
You can find out more about A Rocha UK on our Mission: Far & Near web site HERE.
Andy's Community Cafe
Our friendly community cafe Andy's is open Mondays-Thursdays, 10.30am-3pm, right through the school summer holidays. We have a range of superb coffees, teas and snacks, and a "pay as you feel" menu: there are no fixed prices, so you can pay what you can afford at the time (or nothing if you're feeling the pinch) so no one goes hungry.

Are you a survivor or victim of church related abuse? Could you help the Diocese of Guildford to learn from the past and protect the future?
The Diocese of Guildford is currently reviewing all its records, across all 162 parishes, to ensure that all safeguarding concerns and allegations have been identified, reported, and appropriately actioned. Critical to this, is the voice of survivors and victims. The Diocese of Guildford wants to listen to and to learn from your experiences and ensure that your voices are heard throughout this review process.
Anybody who would like to give information or make disclosures about church-related abuse is asked to contact Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor, Jackie Broadfoot (phone 07918 559387 email email@example.com).
Support is available
The Diocese recognises that coming forward may be extremely difficult and dedicated support has been set up for you. Two confidential listening services have been set up, for those people who have experienced church related abuse but who might want to talk through their experiences and feelings before taking any next step.
