“Mission is not an agenda to be tackled [by clergy and missionaries] to ‘do it for the rest of us’.
Mission is the mode of existence for the whole life of every member of the whole church”
(Chris Wright)

Five Marks of Mission developed by the Anglican Communion are:
To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
To respond to human need by loving service
To seek to transform unjust structures of society
To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth

The Partnership in Mission Committee of the Diocese of Perth invites you to celebrate MISSION including our partnership with the Diocese of Eldoret, Kenya on Sunday 27 August.

Prayers from Eldoret and here are provided for use on the day.

Feel free to use this as an outline for your own service at your parish.


We thank You for blessing us with the joy of being in each other's lives, and we ask that You continue to guide us on our path together so that we may grow deeper in love and understanding. Help us to remain open to one another.

Almighty God, you have created all people and all of creation. We give you thanks for this gift we're invited to engage with hope, joy and love as your disciples. Open our hearts and our eyes to see our communities as you would have us to see them.

Prayer from St John the Divine Anglican Church

We pray that every member of the Church may be witnesses of Christ by word and deed, wherever they find themselves. May the Spirit inspire each of us to offer the right word, at the right time and in the right way.

O God, you have made of one blood all the peoples of the earth, and sent your blessed Son to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near: Grant that people everywhere may seek after you and find you; bring the nations into your fold; pour out your Spirit upon all flesh; and hasten the coming of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer from The Lectionary Page
