We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten you, confuse you or worry you. It is important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing. Click the logo opposite to find out more ...
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 marks were adopted by the General Synod of the Church of
England in 1996 and many dioceses and other denominations used
them as the basis of action plans and creative mission ideas.
Some churches abbreviate the five marks to five words: TELL – TEACH – TEND – TRANSFORM – TREASURE.
In 2012, the ACC added wording to the fourth mark, to include the need for Christians to challenge violence and work for peace.
