Church of England Mission Statement

The Church of England is called, as are all Churches, to carry forward the work that Jesus Christ began in all aspects of the life of people in society. Jesus said to those who followed him 'As the Father has sent me, so do I send you.'

The Mission and Public Affairs division (MPA) oversees how that calling is carried out at the national level of the Church of England in evangelism, development of parish congregations, internationally through the work of the world mission agencies - and in rural and urban situations.
