Summary of the parish and the role of the church within it

Briefly re Building and location

The MISSION of the Christian Church is to follow the two great commandments of Jesus: to love God and our neighbour. We also draw inspiration from the life and example of our patron saint, St. Martin.

We will therefore endeavour to:
1. join in regular worship;
2. provide the best public worship that we can to meet the spiritual needs of all parishioners;
3. deepen our personal spiritual life with prayer and bible reading;
4. recognize our talents and skills and use them for God and our neighbour;
5. reach out with God’s love in the communities in which we live and work;
6. welcome new friends into the family of the Church;
7. identify and stand up for what is right, oppose what is wrong and live as best we can in the
mess in the middle.
