[The Chronicle] Anyone who has recently visited the garden to the left side of the church may well have asked this question, 'why are there beans in the church garden?' The answer is quite simple – because the senior youth group planted them! Over the past year, we have talked occasionally about The 5 Marks of Mission of the Anglican Communion, and in particular, about the 5th Mark: To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth. Being a honeybee keeper, this topic is particularly close to my heart.
'I'm going to talk about the kinds of mission we're engaging in and beyond the Church, and where in recent months I've been particularly asked to enter into this work. I'm going to frame this in the context of the Five marks of Mission, both as a witness to how they shape the work that my office is called to attend to.'
