SOCIAL JUSTICE

The Social Justice team explores how St James’ Church collectively and through individual members can build a culture where acknowledging, addressing and actioning social justice and creation care issues become an integral part of our focus and mission as a church and as individual Christians.

We're inspired by the fourth and fifth marks of mission: 

  1. To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation

  2. To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth
