The theme of this newsletter draws from the central focus of the Lambeth Conference 2022. IAFN promotes the family, in all its shapes and sizes, as a place where we can share the kind of mutual love to which we are called by our Christian faith—honouring one another, respecting each other’s gifts, supporting each other through suffering and encouraging each other in living a good life. We also promote families as practitioners of mission as they seek to live out their baptismal vocation in their communities and beyond. A family may share in evangelism or run a project to help grow new disciples. A family may undertake some form of shared service in their community, campaign together against injustice, or enter deeply into practical creation care. In all such activities they are contributing to the mission of the church, which is the mission of Christ. The stories in this newsletter show how families are places of mission within and beyond themselves, and how the church can support and strengthen them in this ministry.
