In the Anglican church caring is a priority. The church highlights the need to work for the transformation of society according to God’s values where all people, regardless of their background and upbringing, are treated with dignity and respect.
Some ways that the Wellington Diocese promotes social transformation initiatives are by grappling with social justice issues for example, by lobbying local and central government, and undertaking academic research in social and societal trends. The church is also being proactive in social outreach work to the local community by its involvement with the Anglican City Mission, giving support to refugees, helping at risk Youth, and promoting family values.
Undertaking projects overseas through various Anglican Mission agencies is another way that the Diocese reaches out and demonstrates its caring attitude.
The Anglican church believes in the sanctity of all creation - that God the Creator made our world, God the Son became part of it, and God the Holy Spirit broods over it with care and delight. Therefore the church recognises the need to safeguard, sustain, and care for the environment and the physical world we live in so that all humanity may enjoy a place to live in equity and in harmony with the rest of creation. The need to enjoy, use wisely, and preserve the world’s natural resources for the ongoing benefit of present and future generations, is actively promoted by the Wellington Diocese through various education programmes and promoting healthy lifestyle choices.
