Justice and Peace
'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and all your mind; and love your neighbour as yourself.' Luke 10.27
We believe in a God who invites us to be people of justice - agitating for change in society at home and abroad, as well as seeking to care for others as they experience trauma, conflict, poverty and many kinds of need. We cannot ignore the climate crisis, and we are on a journey as we relearn what it means to trust in God the Creator of all.
Working with Others to Bring Hope and Justice
Under the guidance of our Mission Group, St Paul's supports the work of local, national and international charities - both financially, and through volunteering and working alongside various people and projects. In 2022 we gave away £10,000 to local, national and international projects.
Chris Rose, an ordained Minister in the congregation is the Director of The Amos Trust. https://www.amostrust.org/
John Wroe, a member of the congregation is the Director of Street Child World Cup. https://streetchildunited.org/football-worldcup/
Silver Award Winners
Under the leadership of our Eco Group, St Paul's was the first Cambridge church to be awarded the 'Eco Church' Bronze Award. The award reflects our practical and theological commitment to caring for our world which we try to reflect in our worship and teaching, management of the church building, engagement with the community, and participation at a global level, as well as in our personal lifestyles. St Paul's achieved its 'Eco Church' Silver Award in 2021. For more information, see our Eco website https://ecochurchchair.wixsite.com/stpaulsecochurch
Following a consultation with the whole congregation and in line with our belief that God welcomes all, St Paul's has joined the Inclusive Church organisation. In doing so we stand with Inclusive Church in stating:
“We believe in inclusive church – a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate.
We will continue to challenge the church where it continues to discriminate against people on grounds of disability, economic power, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health, neurodiversity, or sexuality.
We believe in a Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”
