Christ's mission, our mission


Abolish Poverty, End Suffering

We are poised to be Christ’s hands and feet, reaching out through compassionate ministries that serve the poor and hungry and stop conditions that diminish the worth of persons.

We fulfil God’s ultimate vision as we… 

  • Help those who hurt
  • Feed the hungry
  • Support compassionate ministries
  • Respond in times of crisis

The team have recently discussed the question "What banner(s) would Community of Christ in the British Isles be willing to stand under? "  It was acknowledged that members of the church would have differing social/political standpoints, and that is okay. It was also acknowledged that when a person stands for or against a cause, it might be appropriate to do this in the name of this faith community but sometimes it might be more appropriate to acknowledge that they do this as an individual or as a member of a different organisation. 

The following World Church guidelines are instrumental in focusing church governance and policy-making. In response to our call for compassionate ministries, the team is discerning the focus for the British Isles.

Topics covered in recent resolutions include:

  • Predatory loan practices
  • Palestine & Israel
  • Supporting indigenous people
  • Wholeness & wellbeing
  • Nuclear weapons abolition
  • Human trafficking 
  • Organ & tissue donation
  • Sexual abuse of children
  • Capital punishment
  • Personal use of firearms
  • International ban landmines
  • Nurture of children
  • Participation in military service
  • Children's advocacy
  • Earth stewardship
  • Racism
