World Mission

The Diocese of St Asaph seeks to take seriously its membership of the world Church and the worldwide Anglican Communion. As a diocese we value and support the work of the main Anglican mission agencies, particularly Us, CMS and Christian Aid as well as other agencies which have formed part of the Welsh Partnership for World Mission.

The Five Marks of Mission are:

To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom (“Tell”)
To Nurture and teach new believers (“Teach”)
To respond to human need in loving service (“Tend”)
To seek to transform unjust structures of society (“Transform”)
To Safeguard creation and sustain and renew the earth (“Treasure”)

Resource materials for study courses and for special events or acts of worship are available and the World Mission Officer is happy to speak, or to suggest speakers with recent ‘World Church’ experience, as well as advising on, for example, gap year or short term placement opportunities.

It is our aim as a Diocese that every local church should have some awareness of, involvement in, and way of supporting World Mission.

We shall also launch a Diocesan World Mission Appeal in the autumn of every year, encouraging parishes, groups and deaneries to make World Mission part of their theme as they keep the season of St Andrew’s-tide, Advent and through to Epiphany;  and there will be a Diocesan World Mission Service at which that offering is received, in the spring.
