Social action, social justice and concern for the environment are vital elements of mission within God’s kingdom. In Southwark, we use the acronym JPIC (Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation) to describe this. On these pages, you will discover many ways to put your faith into action as well as the people who can accompany you on this journey.
JPIC has a focus on the last three Marks of Mission:
to respond to human need by loving service
to transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation
to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.
The Diocesan team has established extensive links with both statutory and voluntary sector organisations, recognising that good strategic partnerships are vital to the effectiveness of our work.
