Be globally aware, taking an interest in the news and other sources.
Identify suitable partners and support them in addressing issues of global justice.
Participate in national campaigns for just causes.
Continue links with missions, welcoming guest preachers to inform us.
Publish regular updates in St Johns News by our mission representatives.
Reflect issues of global justice in worship.
Foster Church unity.
