The Department for Outreach is part of Church House and exists to serve the parishes and ministries of the Diocese by helping them to live out the Five Marks of Mission. These are the Anglican Church’s way of describing how Christians serve one another and the world.  

The Five Marks are;

To tell: To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom

To teach: To teach, baptize and nurture new believers

To tend: To respond to human need by loving service

To transform: To seek to transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation

To treasure: To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth
